Study shows U.S. joint health below average.

About 63% of respondents to a joint health assessment from Joint Juice, Inc., San Francisco, CA, have below average or poor joint health, and more than 70% of Baby Boomers have below average or poor joint health. Since the launch of the joint health assessment on, more than 7500 people have taken the test to evaluate their personal joint health. This assessment, created by Kevin Stone, MD, renowned orthopedic surgeon and founder of Joint Juice, Inc., determines the condition of an individual's joints based on a series of 15 questions regarding Body Mass Index (BMI), diet, exercise, lifestyle and joint health history. Results were collected from July through September 2010 and summarized in five categories: Excellent, Good, Average, Below Average and Poor. "These results not only reinforce the need for a healthy joint regimen, but also reiterate that people are interested in learning about the state of their joint health," said David Ritterbush, CEO of Joint Juice, Inc. "Joints are the foundation to an active and healthy lifestyle, yet are often overlooked."
