Wanna Release Joint Pain? Best Way at Home for Arthritis

  • 5

Arthritis has been the No.1 cause of disability in America. Millions of Americans, regardless of the ages, are suffering from the joint pain caused by arthritis every day. Is there any easy, instant, home-made way to release the pain?

  

   

Warm water helps ease the pain

    

Joint inflammation from arthritis causes pain, stiffness and swelling, and may result in the loss of joint movement or function. Warm water therapy offers effective pain relief without any negative side effect which may be caused by traditional treatments for arthritis.

  

   

As one of the oldest forms of alternative therapy, soaking in warm water works for all kinds of musculoskeletal conditions by loosing the joints and reducing pain. There also seems to be some prolonged effects that goes beyond the period of immersion.

     

Tips on warm water therapy

   

Control the water temperature. Temperatures between 92 and 100 degrees are a healthy range. Don’t make the water too hot especially is you have cardiovascular problems because it can put stress on your heart.

Do some stretch. Warm water is great for moving apart from relaxing. To stimulate blood circulation and release stiff muscles and frozen joints, do some gentle stretching in the water if your tub allows you to do so. Feel the relaxation after stretching like the dog. Or the cat. :D

   

     

  

Use Epsom salts. Using some Epsom salts can help you get magnesium, a mineral that most Americans are not getting enough yet.

Like the cats.

Epsom salts is new to me. It is safe to use it freely? BTW, that cat-stretching is really relaxing.

Epsom salt is likely safe for most people when used as bath salt. Theoretically you may add it freely to your bath water, but adding too much may make your skin uncomfortable. Better follow the instructions on the package.
Wow! I should try it because I really love warm bath!
Congrats coz that's good to your health!
Hahaha!! Dogs and cats know the secret of health!

The method is novel to me. I will try it.
Sounds great! BTW, where can I buy Epsom salts?
Epsom salts are easily obtained at any drug store or supermarket.
