National Bone and Joint Health Action Week

National Bone and Joint Health Action Week

An aching back and joints are among the most common problems facing many people around the world. This week highlights the importance of causes and prevention of musculoskeletal conditions!! Bone and Joint Action Week centers around preventing and treating arthritis, back pain, trauma, pediatric conditions affecting bones, and osteoporosis.

Bone Facts

  1. You lose bones over your lifetime. When we are born, we have 300 bones in our body, but as we age, they fuse together leaving you with 206 bones.
  2. You have 54 bones in your hand, fingers and wrist alone, giving you the power to scroll on your phone, whisk, and write.
  3. Bones renew! Every seven years, you develop a new skeleton because the collagen in bones constantly replenishes itself.
  4. Bones creak – when you hear that creaking sound in your bones as you flex your joints, that’s the arthritis that develops as your bone cartilage thins.
  5. A funny bone isn’t actually a bone. It’s actually your ulnar nerve running inside your elbow!

Why You Should Be Concerned NOW

According to the United States Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI), musculoskeletal problems are disabling conditions that cost American businesses almost $874 billion from 2009 to 2011. If you’ve ever pulled a muscle in your back or even had a crick in your neck, you realize how impossible this makes to live life comfortably until you heal!

How to Take Action

Stretch – before and after you work out or go for a run, make sure take the extra few minutes to properly warm up and cool down your body. Joint problems can be a result of misuse or overuse of without proper preventative care. Yoga is also another fun alternative to a low impact work out!
