Experiencing aches and pains in your body is normal. But when these aches and pains persist for longer periods of time and make it difficult for you to move, you have to start asking a few questions.
What is causing this pain? Should I seek help?
Aches and pains are common for a body that is unhealthy and unfit. By the time the unease of these aches and pains set in, it is too late to do any activity in order to get healthier. Based on the research of our IndiaFit Report, we’ve identified the top 4 causes of body aches and pains.
What Causes Aches and Pain?
- Additional Weight Strain: When you’re overweight, the additional pounds place immense strain on your joints and bones. This continued strain causes long term issues in the body which result in body aches and pains.
- Lack of Movement: One of the major causes of body aches is a sedentary lifestyle. Sitting in one place for longer periods of time, incorrect or bad posture and lack of exercise, all contribute to body pain.
- Incorrect Posture While Exercising: Incorrect form or posture when lifting weights, performing an exercise or not giving your body enough cause strain and further aches and pains.
- Vitamin D Deficiency: Vitamin D is essential for bone health. Lack of it can cause body aches. This deficiency may be due to lack of exposure to sunlight, not getting enough Vitamin D from food, not being able to absorb Vitamin D from food, etc.
How Can You Tackle Body Aches and Pains?
The easiest way to deal with this issue is to get enough of Vitamin D. Right from its basic function of increasing calcium absorption to promoting bone health, it can also elevate mood, reduce depression and build immunity.
Some of the other ways to deal with aches include:
- Losing excess weight
- Fix Vitamin D3, Magnesium, and Calcium Levels
- Develop muscles around the bone
- Invest in rest and recovery after a workout
- Avoid acidity causing foods
