You may already know this if you are working in one of these professions. If you are and are wondering why your joints hurt so much it is because they are on a list of worst jobs for joints. If you have joint pain and are looking for a job, you might want to reconsider these:
1. Construction workers
Working in the construction industry poses many arthritis risks. Lifting heavy weights incorrectly and without the right assistance is a significant arthritis risk factor. Another cause of arthritis is using tools that vibrate. If you have to be in this industry, take a lot of breaks.
Repetitive motion is the life of a musician. You can try to modify for example if you play the violin try to learn how to hold the bow in a way that reduces strain on the wrist, elbow, and shoulder.
Teachers and anyone on their feet all day are prone to foot arthritis. Try to avoid this by wearing flat or low-heeled shoes that provide support all around the foot and under the arch. High heels can increase arthritis risk because of the uneven pressure on parts of your foot, which leads to bunions and stress on the many joints in your foot.
Dance may cause arthritis in almost every joint. Ankles and hips are likely candidates for arthritis symptoms as ballet dancers get older, for example. Staying fit, taking good care of joints, and taking time to heal after any injuries are the best arthritis prevention strategies.
5. Professional athletes
Professional athletes are not just at risk for brain damage, but also for arthritis of the knees and hips. Think about being tackled daily at high speeds by people weighing several hundred pounds. One preventive might be, for example, professional basketball players who have to learn how to fall on their buttocks so that they don't injure their wrists.
