EmpowHER Launches Joint Health Resource Page

Top 5 Women's Health and Wellness Site Offers Free Resources on Keeping Joints Healthy and Strong

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - Jul 7, 2011) - Joint protection is vital in maximizing mobility and minimizing joint deterioration over time. To make it easier for women to learn how to keep their joints healthy and strong, EmpowHER, an award-winning women's health media company, has launched a free Joint Health resource page to highlight preventative care, treatments and facts surrounding joint care.

According to the CDC, about 47 million adults in the United States have some form of arthritis or chronic joint pain. Women are more likely than men to be diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune conditions that cause joint pain, such as lupus, scleroderma and multiple sclerosis. Taking care of joints through preventative measures like exercise, diet and weight control, however, can keep joints strong throughout the aging process.

Through EmpowHER's Joint Health resource page, women can gain insight into improving joint health, learn tips for preventing injury and disease, find expert explanations and gain support from real women through the Bone and Joint Community.

Content on EmpowHER's resource page includes:

"Joint issues often go unnoticed and uncared for because they are so common, but they cannot be ignored any longer," says Michelle King Robson, EmpowHER's Founder, Chairperson and CEO. "To help women understand the importance of protecting our joints, EmpowHER has created this resource featuring tips and expert advice on the prevention and treatment of joint issues to ensure that even aging bodies will be at less risk for joint and bone damage."
