Arthritis indicators could be joint ache, inflammation, restricted movements, soreness and stiffness, especially early in the morning. Arthritis is typically swelling of body joints where bones meet. It develops when the cartilage gets affected, and when normal quantity of cartilage diminishes, the bones begin rubbing together, triggering discomfort. Treatment solutions could include low impact aerobic activity, 8-10 hours of sleep, avoid remaining in one position, practice yoga and meditation, get rid of excess weight, eat more fruits and vegetables, and omega three rich foods, such as fish, soybeans and walnuts. And please consult your physician.
Congratulations to these winners in the pitch tournament: Sybil Heckendorn (221), Joretta Sawyer (209), and Millie Heavener (198). We’re gonna have to stop these ladies!
Our pitch tournament for the month of March will be on Monday, March 5 and Monday, March 19, despite what your green monthly calendars tells you.
Until next week, have a good one!
