Natural Arthritis Pain Relief Treatments

Mar 21, 2008
Arthritis pain can have a tremendous impact on how you live your life. If you are taking large amounts of pain killers you may be concerned about possible side-effects of these drugs. If you are looking for a way to manage your arthritis pain with possibly no side-effects then you should investigate natural arthritis pain relief treatments.

1. Easy and Simple - Exercise and Stretch

It is common for arthritis sufferers to restrict moving the joint afflicted with arthritis. This is to avoid pain and the belief that exercising the joint will make their arthritis worst. In fact, the reverse is often true. When muscle are un-exercised for long periods of time they become weaker and less flexible, making the joint less stable. This leads to making the arthritis more severe.

Exercises that are easy on the joints are very effective in treating arthritis pain. Strength training is an excellent option as it keeps the muscles strong and, if you use a full range of motion, keeps the muscles flexible. You may also wish to add some sort of balancing work to your workout.

You should also have some sort of stretching routine after you weights workout.

2. Natural Supplement - Glucosamine

Glucosamine is another natural arthritis pain relief treatment which has found strong support in the research literature. Glucosamine is a natural substance found inside the body that helps reverse cartilage damage, lubricate the joint and relieve pain. Liquid glucosamine is considered to be more effective than glucosamine in tablet or powder form.

Glucosamine products are not all made equal. Do your due diligence to ensure you get the best value for money.

3. A Good Alternative - Acupuncture

An ancient technique, acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat different types of pain and countless numbers of arthritis sufferers have used acupuncture as a way to relieve their arthritis pain. It involves putting thin needles into areas of the body to unlock energy and promote blood flow.

If you wish to try acupuncture make sure you use someone who has been trained properly in the treatment.

As with anything, make sure you research a natural arthritis pain relief treatment before trying. These treatments can help relive arthritis pain, are inexpensive, have no side effects and can be used in conjunction with more traditional medical treatments.
