Living with arthritis can be tough, and sometimes the day to day things can often seem impossible — but they don’t always have to be. There are many little things you can add to your daily routine that can help ease some of the pain and stiffness while protecting yours from further damage. Here are five ways you can do to reduce arthritis pain:
1. Keep Active
One of the best was to help ease the joint pain is through regular activity. Keeping your joints mobile can help you maintain the flexibility in your joints making everyday events more bearable. Try low impact exercises that allow you to flex your joints fully.
2. But Avoid High Impact Activities
Though you should stay active, specific activities should be avoided. High impact workouts can put unnecessary stress on your joints and do further damage. So avoid any exercise that might include jumping, running or anything that could add pressure to your bones.
3. Maintain a Healthy Weight
We all know that a healthy weight is a huge part of your overall health, but it’s also necessary for your joint health. Excess weight puts added pressure on your bones, especially your knees, and hips. By keeping a healthy weight, you can increase your mobility, ease the pain in your joint and prevent further damage!
4. Change Your Diet
A natural way to try and reduce the arthritis pain is through a balanced diet. Specific Fatty acids are rumored to help alleviate stiffness and pain. Like all other diet changes, you’ll want to speak with your doctor before taking any supplements or making any drastic diet changes.
5. Consider Massage
Massages can help relax your muscles and ease some of the pain and stiffness. With regular visits, you may even see a better range of motion. A physical therapist can also instruct you on how to do at home self-massage too.
