Alternative Arthritis Pain Relief

Posted Feb 13 2010 11:27pm

Arthritis pan can be unbearable at timesbut you have so many options that will make you feel better and the pain either disappear or lessen. Don’t allow yourself to get discouraged from your pain. You should allow yourself to do your everyday activitiesby choosing to deal with your pain.

Firstthe most natural form of painkillers is in fact heat. Heat is a natural painkiller that allows your muscles to relax. You must be aware; heat is only a temporary painkiller. The pain is not gone for more than maybe ten minutes after you turn the heat off. You can get alternative arthritis pain. These methods are not what is usually used or prescribed by your doctor.

One of the alternative pain relievers is massage therapy. Massage therapy allows the mind to become comfortable and let go of all the inner stress that leads to most pain. It can also do the same thing as heat can. Your body will become loose and you won’t feel as much pain. You must keep in mind that this too is only temporary. If you don’t want to leave you home and its foot or ankle painyou make want to purchase a foot spa. This way you get the benefits of the massager and the heat.

Another alternative way to relieve pain is acupuncture. Acupuncture is a Chinese form of pain relief. In fact acupuncture is used for more than just painbut for almost anything you can think of. It hasn’t been certified as a method of pain relieverbut it has been known to get rid of some people’s pain. This method is not for acute pain. If just touching the skin (without pressure) hurtsthen this is not the method for you. Acupuncture is where the stick small needles at the points of your pain to release the pain and pressure.

Your pain will come back. Since it is arthritisthere is no cure. You just need to find way to deal with your pain. Being on medication all the time isn’t good for your body eitherthat’s why some of these alternative pain relievers are better.
