Three tips for arthritis pain relief

Post  forumtester on Mon Mar 26, 2018 8:20 pm

Some experts think that arthritic pain conditions in general aggravate and flare up trigger points, and that one can get additional relief to theses arthritis symptoms through self-massage. The idea is not to massage the area where it hurts, but to find pressure tender areas in your muscles near the actual pain area and massage them. For example, if your arthritis pain is in your knee joint then you would find and massage tender points from your quadriceps muscles.

Not moving will only make matters worse in the long run, therefore, it is important to maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. Besides maintaining functionality, exercise can work as a natural pain medicine as it releases endorphins – the body’s natural pain killers. Just a half an hour’s long walk can be all that’s needed to release enough endorphins to make a difference.

Not everybody agrees that supplements are useful, there is enough anecdotal evidence to support them. Supplements that are thought to help in maintaining joint health, and which may be helpful in some arthritic conditions are:

Glucosamine – amino sugar that may have a role in cartilage repair.
Chondroitin – component of cartilage that works similar to glucosamine.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) – a big supplier of sulphur.
Omega 3 fatty acids – can be obtained from fish oils.
