The likelihood of joint discomfort increases with age. A poor bone structure, lack of proper physical activity, and lack of important nutrients in your diet can all contribute to and worsen the condition. While medicine can aid with relief from pain, other time-tested approaches such as yoga can help to eliminate pain completely. Yoga, in addition to treating pain, tones the body and soothes the mind.

Here are some simple yoga asanas that can strengthen your joints and relieve you of pain.
