The first line of defense when it comes to pain management is typically pain medication. However, some drugs cause adverse side effects, which has led to a more natural approach to pain relief.
How do you currently cope with arthritis pain?
One of the first things we discuss with our clients who are living with arthritis is weight management. Carrying extra weight adds pressure to joints, especially your knees, hips, and feet. When you change your diet and increase your movement, you’re not only tossing aside the extra pounds, but you’re improving mobility, flexibility and preventing future damage by building muscle strength.
When choosing an exercise routine, talk to your health specialist. Too much strain could hurt you, so it’s best to stick to low-impact exercises when in doubt.
