Here are natural ways to relieve arthritis pain.
MANAGE YOUR WEIGHT
Your weight can have a big impact on arthritis symptoms. Extra weight puts more pressure on your joints, especially your knees, hips, and feet.
GET ENOUGH EXERCISE
If you have arthritis, exercise can help you:
manage your weight, keep your joints flexible, strengthen muscles around your joints, which offers more support.
Current guidelines strongly recommend starting an appropriate exercise program.
USE HOT AND COLD THERAPY
Heat and cold treatments can help relieve arthritis pain and inflammation.
* Heat treatments can include taking a long, warm shower or bath in the morning.
* Cold treatments can help relieve joint pain, swelling, and inflammation.
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical treatment that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on your body. Practitioners say it works by rerouting energies and restoring balance in your body.
USE MEDITATION TO COPE WITH PAIN
Meditation and relaxation techniques may help reduce the pain of arthritis by lowering stress and enabling you to cope with it better. Reducing stress may also help lower inflammation and pain.
FOLLOW A HEALTHY DIET
A diet that’s rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole foods can help boost your immune system and your overall health. A plant-based diet provides antioxidants, which can help reduce inflammation by eliminating free radicals from the body.
ADD TUMERIC TO DISHES
Turmeric, the yellow spice common in Indian dishes, contains a chemical called curcumin. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Research suggests it may help reduce arthritis pain and inflammation.
