Three tips to relieve arthritis pain from high-impact workouts
“You're too young to have arthritis pain.”

It seems like every time you turn around, you hear this phrase. Truth is, while your risk for arthritis increases with age, it's not limited to older adults. Statistics reveal that eight million millenials in the United States have been diagnosed with arthritis.

One major cause is overdoing it on the high-impact workouts, such as boot camps and CrossFit, according to David T Neuman, founder of Pop-Doc.com.

Three tips to ease arthritis pain after working out

#1: Apply ice to your painful, stiff joints
Icing your joints may be an age-old remedy for soothing pain and stiffness, but it’s still one of the best. Apply ice covered in a T-shirt to the affected joints for 15 to 20 minutes at a time. You can do this up to five times per day, for three days. The cold quickly helps reduce inflammation and pain.

#2: Do range-of-motions exercise before and after working out
Range-of-motion exercises are exercises aimed at improving the movement of a specific joint. To prevent arthritis pain after working out, you should perform these exercse pre- and post-workout. Some good exercises to try include marching in place and swinging your legs from front to back. This will help boost blood flow and, in turn, improve joint mobility.
 
#3: Stop doing workouts that cause sharp joint pain
Any workouts that cause sharp joint pain rather than dull and achy joint pain can cause serious damage to your joints in the long run. Stop doing these workouts at once! If the pain or discomfort doesn’t go away after two weeks off, see an orthopaedist to discuss your treatment options.
