Arthritis / Joint Pain

Those experiencing arthritis symptoms and general joint pain should consider the impact their diet is having on their condition.

It may be a food sensitivity, which is contributing to these problems.

Why do my joints hurt?

Many people suffer from arthritis and related conditions, experiencing frequent stiffness, pain, swelling, fatigue and reduced mobility. Inflammation can sometimes occur when the body’s immune system targets affected joints, leading to pain and swelling which can be debilitating.

Joint pain symptoms:
Typical joint pain symptoms include:

• Persistently aching joints such as ankles, wrists, knees, hips, back or shoulders
• Stiffness or swelling in joints
• Pain during movement

Joint Pain and Diet 

If you find yourself asking “why do my joints hurt?” and experience prolonged aches and pains without an obvious cause you should visit your medical practitioner to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

If you continue to experience persistent aching joints, it may be a good opportunity to take a closer look at your diet.

As individuals, our reactions to foods and drinks we consume varies a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. At YorkTest, we like to refer to this as our personal ‘food fingerprint’.

For those with joint pain, maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet could be beneficial to your joint health.
