Living an active everyday life despite arthrosis

When every movement is painful...

Arthrosis is the most common joint disease in the world. It refers to the progressive loss of mobility in joints caused by the wear and tear of articular cartilage. As a result, the cushioning function of cartilage is no longer provided and the bones underneath the cartilage are subjected to increased stress. In advanced arthrosis, the joint bones consequently rub against each other. This causes severe pain and loss of mobility.

Possible causes of arthrosis

Arthrosis is directly linked to our lifestyle. For example, obesity, a bad diet and a lack of exercise can influence joint disease.
However, too much athletic stress, like in high-level sports, can also contribute to wear and tear on our joints. Muscle tightness, tension, cramps, overexertion and tight fascia also affect our ability to move smoothly, leading to excessive wear and tear on the joints.

Most common types of arthrosis

Coxarthrosis

Coxarthrosis syndrome refers to deterioration of the hip joint. It often leads to restricted movement and pain that can spread to the buttocks or knee joint. In extreme cases of progressive arthrosis, the joint has to be replaced by a prosthesis.

Gonarthrosis

Gonarthrosis is arthrosis affecting the knee joint and is the most common joint disease in adults worldwide. Affected individuals usually feel pain when bending their knees, or when climbing stairs, but also after sitting or lying down for long periods of time. A typical symptom is also “initial pain”, which improves after a few minutes of movement.
These two types of arthrosis are especially common because of the importance of our hips and knees. These joints bear our entire body weight and are therefore subjected to greater stress during everyday movements.

2 reasons to use the belliconn mini-trampoline to counteract arthrosis

  • Gentle muscle building
    Holistic movement exercises all the muscles of your body in a gentle manner. This kind of exercise not only helps you prevent arthrosis by strengthening your body, but it also helps with existing arthrosis. This will help you curb the disease’s progression by improving your body awareness.
  • Improved coordination
    You can improve your balance and coordination on the bellicon’s elastic trampoline mat. The mat also prevents common twists and falls in your day-to-day life and protects your joints.

People who suffer from arthrosis symptoms can easily fall into a negative downward spiral.

Because of the pain, many people simply don’t want to move. But the less you move, the worse the pain gets. Exercising on the bellicon can help you look forward to physical activity. The trampoline’s soft mat and mild bounce won’t cause you a lot of pain while exercising. So, little by little, you’ll start enjoying exercise again.
  • Fruit and vegetables
    Both types of food provide antioxidants that can fight free radicals (chemical intermediates in our metabolism) and therefore prevent inflammation in our body.
  • Herbs
    Different types of herbs contain various active ingredients that can help you prevent arthrosis or alleviate its symptoms. For example, turmeric has an anti-inflammatory effect, and rosemary promotes blood circulation.
  • Healthy fats
    In moderation, fatty foods can also help. These types of foods include nuts, which provide your body with minerals and vitamins such as potassium, magnesium and sodium, as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Just 10 minutes a day will improve your well-being and fitness level in the long run.
