Reaching retirement is a major accomplishment, and for many people, that is when their lives begin anew. Hobbies and passions can become one’s focus in life, but there may be new distractions that come with the territory. The average retirement age is around 50. Though 50 is not very old, it is an age when certain health risks become even greater.
Arthritis is one of the most common age-related health concerns. Arthritis affects the joints, turning simple mobility into a struggle. This occurs as strenuous activities add up throughout our lives. Regular exercise, rather than bursts of strenuous activity, can help to prevent this problem and should become a common part of your retirement life.
