Title: Joint Health (Not weed, you dumb kids)
Post by: Babe, Mr. Ruth if you're Nasty on January 25, 2012, 08:37:16 AM
I've noticed recently that my sessions have been cut short due to two reasons, asthma and my joints ache. Instead of taking a lot of tylenol, I was wondering if any of my bretheren know of any supplements I can take, or foods I can eat to increase my mobility in my joints (primarily knees and ankles). I already stretch for about five to ten minutes before each session, but I'm always hurting afterwards. Let me know what works for you guys.

I used to have the same problem. Knee's or ankles would start hurting after a good session and then ache like hell afterwards. I started taking this supplement about a year ago and will never stop taking it. I take a shot every morning. I have tried the hard pill form but this liqiud stuff works a whole lot faster and you notice it working much more than the pills. I work at a natural foods distributor so I get it for half off too.

You gotta take it everyday for it to work.  I tried but could never stay on the program.

I keep contemplating getting on the joint lube, but haven't gotten into it yet.

The soreness you feel after skating is usually caused by inflamation in the joints.  I advise a post skate stretching session while icing your knees and ankles, drinking a beer or six and watching a video.

Also, riding a bike and climbing a lot of stairs will help with your legs' overall conditioning and ease the impact of skating on them.

These are a few things that I think really help:

1.  Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM.  These are all supplements that are supposed to support good joint health and a lot of people with tell you that the effects are noticeable.

2.  Omega 3, 6, 9 oil.  You can either supplement this or get it through diet just by eating food like fish, nuts or slathering on the olive oil.  I swear by this one, this shit is crucial to have in your diet as it helps in a lot of ways but most importantly it's supposed to help in lubricating joints.   

3.  You aren't going to want to hear this one but going to the gym helps a lot with joint health.  The movement, increased blood flow and resistance helps build up your tendon strength and keep everything tight and operating smoothly.  It also helps by making you less prone to injuries and hits do less damage in the first place.

4.  Ice any injuries.  Most damage is done by residual swelling so if you can get ice on stuff before the inflammation kicks in then you are doing yourself a favor.

5.  Stretching and warm up before your session.  This helps with range of motion and flexibility but the duration and extent of stretching that occurs when you roll up to a spot is also inversely proportional to your street credibility.

Bonus:  I also back the "beer or six and watching a video" with the video being either of a skateboarding or pornographic nature.

If you choose the a option b, make sure to stretch those wrists before any heavy lifting.

I didn't want to add this one for fear of sounding vain but you have forced my hand. 

6.  I strap my walrus-sized cock to my hamstring, shin and ankle with athletic tape and tuck the grapefruits in my side and back pant pockets (have this one dialed with Dickies 874s).  This helps mitigate repeated blunt trauma to the inside of each knee and torsion stress from swaying. I have tried everything from skinny jeans to hard sided pool cue cases and the above setup seems to offer the most flexibility and discretion.

As soon as I get some money, I'm going to invest in Glucosamine and some Fish Oil pills. Those sound like the best things to me right now.

nice.  thanks for the tip. i'll pick up some of those 874's.  my element pants just aren't doing the trick.

Hey Salamander, where do you recommend getting that stuff? It's around $25 for a month's supply online. Hoping I can find it somewhere cheaper.

I would say that's a good deal. It retails for about $36 most supplement stores. I am able to buy it through my work at wholesale cost but it's still about $20 a bottle, 1 bottle usually lasts about a month or so.

Health cost a lot of money...

I took a pay deduction 6 months ago to work the day shift, I've gain 20 pounds; I have to wait another 6 months before I can go back to nights

Listen to Dr. Andrew Weil (http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART02012/anti-inflammatory-diet) and anything he says about slowing down friction in our body's.

Stop taking Tylenol and start taking Ibuprofen.

I think it is much reasonable price. I had checked it a week ago and it is available at cheap rate from stores price.

Picked up pills of Glucosamine and Omega 3 6 9's today. And I ended up having a three hour long session. Joints feel great. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
