Don’t let joint pain keep you from enjoying life

Young people training in the gym

Sore, throbbing joints can make life difficult. About all you can think of doing is heading for the couch and sitting there till the pain goes away.

But sitting can actually make joint pain worse!

Hours of sitting tighten hip flexor and hamstring muscles and stiffen the joints. Tight hip flexors and hamstrings can affect gait and balance, making it harder to walk — or even making you more likely to fall.

That’s why experts at Harvard Medical School created The Joint Pain Relief Workout. This remarkable book brings you 47 targeted joint exercises for shoulders, hips, ankles, and knees that help reduce pain and stiffness and improve flexibility.

You’ll get photos of each exercise, along with lists of tips and techniques, the number of repetitions you should do, and even ideas for making the moves easier or harder depending on your fitness level.

Plus, included in your Joint Pain Relief Workout are 2 special extras:

#1: Walking plan and program: If joint pain is making you more sedentary, try the special walking plan on page 10 of The Joint Pain Relief Workout. You’ll see how to safely increase your physical activity — why it’s minutes, not miles, that matter most — plus get 10 ways to up your motivation to move more.

#2: Wrist & elbow mini-workout: Don’t let tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow or your 9-to-5 office routine sideline you. On page 43, you’ll find four exercises for keeping wrists and elbows moving freely — and you’ll even get an easy exercise to strengthen your hand.
