But this is not how health things work and as such, there is a chance that sticking to the prevention tips can go a long way to lower your risk of arthritis.

In this article in line with a publication on Cleveland Clinic, we are going to have a look at some ways older women can prevent arthritis from getting worse or even developing at all. If you are wondering how to prevent the disease from starting in the first instance, this article will serve as a source of enlightenment to a good extent.

What Are The Ways Of Preventing Arthritis From Advancing or Progressing?

1. Stay away from tobacco products - studies have shown that using tobacco products may put you at a higher risk of developing arthritis. So for this reason, as an older woman who wouldn't want to have anything to do with these terrible bone diseases, staying away from tobacco can go a long way.

2. Try as much as possible to avoid joint injuries. When you suffer joint injuries, you automatically raise your risk of developing arthritis. So it is advisable to avoid joint injuries as much as you can especially if you are at genetically at risk of suffering the condition.

3. Maintain a healthy body weight. There is no over stating the fact that maintaining a healthy body weight is key to being free from many health issues. Fortunately, arthritis is also part of the list of health issues that can be avoided when you maintain your body weight. So for this reason, endeavour to maintain a healthy body weight to keep your bones from being strained or stressed to the point of being susceptible to arthritis development.
