Joint Juice Announces the State of America's Joint Health
Today Joint Juice Inc, a leading San Francisco-based nutrition company, announces the latest results from its online joint health assessment, revealing the US states with the best – and worst – joint health. As people across America recently made New Year's resolutions to improve their fitness, Joint Juice encourages them to remember take care of their joints as they get in shape. According to findings, Hawaii came out on top as the state with the best joint health, tied with Washington DC and Arkansas. Maine was at the bottom of the list, earning the distinction of the state with the worst joint health.
"Joints are the foundation of an active and healthy lifestyle, yet are often overlooked," said David Ritterbush, Chief Executive Officer of Joint Juice Inc. "We are on a mission to educate Americans about the importance of joint care by continuing to provide educational tools such as our joint health assessment, and offering innovative products to help people continue to do their favorite activities."
Since the launch of the joint health assessment in 2010 on the Joint Juice website nearly 10,000 people have taken the test to evaluate their personal joint health. The results incorporated data from participants in all 50 states. The illustrative joint health assessment created by Kevin R. Stone, MD, renowned orthopaedic surgeon and Joint Juice Inc. founder evaluates the condition of an individual's joints based on a series of 15 questions regarding diet, exercise, lifestyle, Body Mass Index (BMI), and joint health history. Interspersed throughout the assessment are tips from legendary quarterback Joe Montana, who shares his story about how Joint Juice combined with a healthy lifestyle has helped him stay active. Results were collected from June 2010 through December 2011, and summarized in five categories: Excellent, Good, Average, Below Average, and Poor.
In 2012, Joint Juice Inc. will continue their partnership with Joe Montana for the second consecutive year to encourage Americans to focus on their joint health so they can get back to doing the activities that they love to do. The nationwide campaign will offer tips, tricks, and exercises to help people get on a path to healthier joints.
