10 Home Remedies for Arthritis & Joint Pain


Joint pain is very common in people from several
different age groups and is often times associated with more serious conditions such as osteoporosis
or arthritis. Whether or not these conditions are associated
with bone diseases, joint pain may also be a result of the person’s lifestyle, especially
if the person works an office job and has to sit for long periods of time or constantly
carries heavy items. In this video, we’ll see how you can deal
with joint pain, using tips that can be easily incorporated in your day to day routine: Apply ice Ice helps to reduce inflammation in sore muscles. For it to have the desired effect, ice must
be applied as soon as there is any sign of pain. All you have to do is wrap ice cubes in a
cloth or plastic bag and apply them to the desired location for 10 to 15 minutes. You can take a cold bath, as long as the pain
isn’t so bad that it affects your mobility. Heat therapy If the ice application doesn’t reduce your
joint pain, that means that the pain is not a result of inflammation. If that’s the case, change your strategy
and try heat therapy. Take a very hot bath—as hot as you can stand—to
relax your muscles. You can complement your heat therapy with
Epsom salts or a bubble bath. Steam baths are also a very good way to use
heat therapy. They relax tension and reduce muscle pain. Saunas are the most common steam baths, but
you could also do them at home. Massages Trying to give yourself a massage isn’t
recommended, however, not everyone has access to a professional masseuse. To treat joint pain, all you have to do is
softly press the affected area and make circular movements to relax it. It would be ideal if you could visit a professional
once a week, if joint and muscle pain is frequent or common, since professional masseuses know
effective techniques and will use creams, oils, or gels that will help lessen the pain. Massage oils You should massage the affected areas with
natural and easy to find oils. The most effective oils have main ingredients
with anti-inflammatory properties such as: Ground black pepper
Rosemary Apple cider vinegar Stretching Stretching your muscles is a very common and
simple exercise used in gyms, since it helps you avoid pulling muscles before or after
exercising. Stretching for about 10 minutes can help reduce
joint pain caused by being in the same position for extended amounts of time. Keep in mind that stretching will not help
if your muscle is injured or if your exercise routine is very intense. Every morning, you should stretch for about
5 minutes, focusing on your arms and legs. This way you can avoid joint pain. Walking One major benefit that comes from walking
is that it helps you avoid a sedentary lifestyle. You don’t have to walk a lot to treat joint
pain. Jut start with at least 20 minutes 2 or 3
times a week. Take advantage of this time to roll your shoulders,
move your arms, and loosen up your neck for better results. Yoga Yoga is a one-thousand year old technique
that prevents and treats joint and muscle pain. Practicing yoga regularly improves your body’s
flexibility, alleviates stress, and prevents cramping. If it’s not possible to attend a yoga class,
you can always do yoga at home by watching YouTube videos. Good nutrition In some cases, the lack of certain nutrients
makes us more likely to cramp up and have joint and muscle pain. Be sure to maintain a balanced diet, and eat
from the main food groups: healthy fats, proteins and carbohydrates. Stay hydrated When your muscles aren’t properly hydrated,
they can’t recover their elasticity and they hinder the treatment of joint pain. The lack of water in your body paired with
a sedentary lifestyle or over-exertion, increases the risk of joint pain. You should drink 2 liters of water per day,
but be flexible. In the summer that amount may go up, depending
on the weather and the amount of time spent exercising, so you should always make sure
to stay properly hydrated. Rest Getting a good night’s sleep is essential,
since all of our daily obligations cause stress, and stress is a big source for joint pain. Always sleep at least 8 hours a day, and maintain
a regular sleep schedule. Remember that muscles repair themselves during
the night, while we’re sleeping.
