Do You Suffer With Joint Pain?

Joint Pain

Managing joint pain is essential for maintaining overall well being. Whether you’re dealing with arthritis or other joint related discomfort, here are some practical tips to help you alleviate pain and improve your quality of life:

Learn About Your Condition:

Understand the type of arthritis you have and whether any joints are already damaged.

Enlist your doctor, friends and family in managing your pain.

Daily Routines:

Pay attention to your joints during everyday activities.

Keep your joints moving by doing gentle stretches that cover their full range of motion.

Maintain good posture; a physical therapist can guide you on proper sitting, standing and movement techniques.

Find a balance between activity and rest to avoid overexertion.

Lifestyle Changes:

Manage your weight, excess weight can worsen arthritis pain.

Quit smoking as it stresses connective tissues, which can increase pain.

Exercise:

Movement is crucial for joint health.

Choose low impact activities like walking, cycling or water exercises.

Focus on stretching, range-of-motion exercises and gradual strength training.

Avoid high impact and repetitive motions (E.g. Running, jumping and tennis).

Medications:

Over the counter pain relievers (Acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen) can help manage occasional pain.

Consult your doctor for a personalised medication plan.
