Healing Joint Pain
If you're over twenty five, you probably have experienced some form of joint pain. The bad news is that as we get older the more likely it is that we will have persistent joint pain of some sort. If you play sports, jog or weight train you are likely to have tendinitis at some point, and as you age arthritis becomes a probability. In fact 68% of people over the age of 65 are living with arthritis. It can be very debilitating. Now that many of us work on computers for a living, we are likely to develop tendinitis in our fingers and wrists, others may get lateral epicondylitis or tennis elbow if their work involves any type of lifting.
The good news is that we now have supplements and therapies to heal the pain. Before you start any healing program for your joint pain, you should consult with a physician to determine the type of joint pain you have and discuss the various options there are for healing it.
Here are some of the things you can do to help relieve the pain and start healing:
Rest - Take some time out from sports or activities that may be irritating your joints. Give it time to heal.
Massage - You can go to a professional or gently massage your joints on your own.
Hot and Cold Therapies - You can apply heat pads and/or ice the area which may relieve the pain and help with inflammation.
Stretching and Exercise - Physical therapy that stretches and strengthens the muscles and tendons is and essential to pain relief and healing.
Supplements - Supplements with nutrients that are referred to as chondroprotective agents and include glucosamine and chondroitin are vital to healthy joint structure and function.
