How to prevent joint problems

by Veli-Jussi Jalkanen

The important principle “use it or lose it” also applies to joint health.

Joints need regular and moderate exercise because only that effectively “lubricates” the joints, activates cell renewal, and strengthens muscles around the joints. We also need exercise and stretching that maintains the wide movement range of the joints.

Back problems are mainly due to sitting with the back rounded. In this position the fluid circulation of the back (especially in the lower back) decreases due to the muscle tension and immobility caused by bad posture. Thus, waste removal and nutrient intake of the back tissue will not work properly and all tissues will begin to degenerate.

When to process continues chronic pains will follow. The situation of the lower back is further aggravated by the fact that there are no so-called joint vertebrae around the lowest vertebra. So the L4-L5 area often gets too little oxygen and nutrients, and the situation is further worsened by sitting in a slouched position.

An effective counteraction is a two-part swinging saddle chairand loose clothes (optimally not even underwear) and a desk that can be quickly adjusted. Swinging of the hips that the chair enables, and any other possible exercise (ascending stairs, having negotiations and making phone calls while walking), is beneficial. Standing is a good variation but it also has its own side effects. Standing for approximately 5-15 minutes, max. 30% of the work time, is still good for the joint health. A one-part saddle chair does not enable a good posture and comfortable sitting because of the pressure on the genital area, and it also is a health risk.

Joint health can be improved by certain nutritional supplements. These include, e.g., collagen of bone broth, omega3 fatty acids (from fish or supplements), baking soda, turmeric, ginger, MSM, glucosamine, ashwagandha herb (especially with ginger and turmeric), chondroitin sulfate, and shark cartilage and mussel concentrates.

These substances can be obtained from various special dishes and supplements. The combination of several substances is more efficient.

    Seat covers and wheels

    My Salli chair looks so much better now with its new seat covers. Very easy to replace and the roller blade wheels mean I can zoom around so quickly. I wouldn't be without my Salli chair.

    Salli Saddle seat chair

    Very happy with this saddle chair that I purchased for my 13 year old grand daughter. The help and advice I got from David was amazing. Thoroughly recommend buying from this company.

    Fantastic and you are welcome Heather. Your granddaughter is off to a great start and can now sit healthily for the rest of her life. The benefits over her lifetime will be huge!
    Works a treat

    The Salli Swayfit is everything it promises to be & slips completely under the desk if I choose to stand at the computer.
    The sway active sitting mechanism works a treat & I now sleep without back pain.

    Fantastic to hear John! It sounds like you are using Salli exactly as it is intended when using a desk and are therefore getting great results.

    The missing link for performance and creativity?

    As a professional Musician and Recording Studio owner, I aspire to utilise the best tools in order to develop my skills and capture the best performances. I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on equipment to help me be the best I can be, however I never realised the importance of seating in the equation till I was introduced to the Salli Chair. I am sold. This seating system is incredible and besides the obvious health benefits it helps in my performance and dare I say it creativity.
    Thank you David and Team, the world needs to be exposed to this incredible invention.”

    Thanks so much for the incredible review. Keep on rockin!
