3 Worst Foods for Joint Pain
By Sarah Reed, Medical Director
You know that sensation — you bend over to grab the groceries from the car or you simply rise from your favorite chair, only to writhe with pain in your neck, back, hips, knees or, worse, all of the above.
While these aches and pains that seem to be the inevitable result of aging are common —affecting more than 21 million American adults — they are not just part of “getting older.” In fact, many joint pains can be relieved or even prevented with one simple daily habit . . . and, no, it’s not more exercise.
But, changing the foods you eat? Now that’s an easy change you can make to stop the pain.
It’s true what they say, “You are what you eat.” Researchers have uncovered evidence that certain foods contribute to pain-inducing inflammation, which leads to these well-known discomforts:
- Soreness or pain in one or more joints
- Joint stiffness, particularly in the morning
- Restricted motion in one or more joints, making it difficult to perform some activities
- Grinding, crackling, or popping sensations or sounds in joints
