As we get older, our bodies start to become more susceptible to various health conditions. Annoying and frustrating as it is, it is a fact of life and you’ve basically got a couple of options; give in to it and let it rule your life, or try and make the most of things and find ways that work for you that will relieve your condition.
If your arthritis is not too severe, you may find the painkillers you are taking mask the pain and discomfort so you can carry on with everyday life. However, what you really need is something that will work in conjunction with the pain relief to lessen the symptoms and improve your life even more.
Many people find that taking alternative medication such as herbal remedies quite successful. Boswellia which comes from the frankincense tree, rosehip and devils claw from a plant native to Namibia can all be a great help though it is important to buy from a reputable manufacturer and check they won’t react with any other medication you are taking.
Many people swear by acupuncture as a great way of relieving pain. It works by stimulating your bodies own endorphins or pain relieving hormones by the insertion of very fine needles at various points in the body. Although it may sound painful, in reality it isn’t and can be very effective.
Hot tubs are another really great way of treating this painful condition and can work in two different ways. Firstly, the warm water in a hot tub can help to relax painful, swollen joints and the weightlessness the body experiences can take the pressure off and relieve pain. Secondly, the massage jets can provide a gentle form of massage that is more relaxing than uncomfortable and can help to relax tight muscles. It is also a pleasant experience that can put you in a positive frame of mind; important for anyone dealing with pain on a daily basis.
