how to relieve pain from arthritis naturallyArthritis isn’t easy to live with. The pain can flare up, hamper your movement, and make every movement a struggle. The pain is caused by inflammation near the joints and it can get worse with age. While most doctors will prescribe painkillers or anti-inflammatory medications to address this problem, you can take a more natural route. Experienced chiropractors at Family Chiropractic & Wellness recommend these natural remedies to relieve arthritis pains.

  • Start Reducing Weight- Excess weight will only place more pressure on your knees, hips, and feet. Most patients tend to forgo exercise and rigorous activity because of arthritis and that can lead to increase in weight. You can avoid this by maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle and performing arthritis-friendly exercises regularly.
  • Exercise- Exercise won’t just help you reduce weight, but it would also help your body remain flexible and healthy. You can try techniques like yoga and tai chi as they are gentle exercises and can help ease the pain of arthritis. Swimming is also a great exercise for people suffering from arthritis. The water would support your joints and weight while the swimming movements would allow you to regain your flexibility.
  • Hot and Cold Treatments- Strained muscles and stiffness can be relieved by long soaks in warm baths. You can also use essential oils or special bath salts to help soothe your joints and relieve stress. Inflammation in specific joints can be addressed with the help of cold compress. You can place ice-packs on the aching joints or inflamed areas and experience quick relief from the pain.

Chiropractors believe the hot and cold treatment are natural and easy to implement, and will give you considerable relief from arthritis pain.
