Creaky knees and achy joints are often the first signals of our maturing bodies. If you live an active lifestyle and love to exercise, the pounding force from high-intensity activities and weight-bearing exercise can further grind away your natural shock absorbers.
Beginning at age 50, these telltale signs start to affect the quality of daily life. Range of motion decreases, flexibility becomes restricted and achiness can turn painful. As cushioning cartilage begins to wear from a lifetime of use, joints become inflamed from increased friction.
