Tips for managing joint pain

51_tickIf you've been suffering from joint pain, you know that it can cause everything from swelling to stiffness to aches -- and that it can make doing your everyday activities a chore.

Taking MediJoint Pain is a giant step in the right direction to finding natural, effective relief from your pain. Soon you'll be seeing results from this revolutionary, clinically proven medication. But there are also some simple things you can do to complement your therapy -- and get yourself on the road to feeling better that much sooner.

Maintain a healthy weight


Being overweight (sometimes only by a little) can stress your joints and lead to pain. Keep your weight in check with regular exercise and by eating a diet that's rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fats. Drinking lots of water and carrying healthy snacks with you (like almonds, carrot sticks or string cheese) can go a long way to helping you curb cravings throughout the day.

Apply heat or ice packs


When your joints are particularly sore, heat or ice can be very soothing. But how do you know when to apply which? Choose heat if your joint is stiff, and ice if the joint is swollen. Apply the pack for short periods of time, checking the skin underneath regularly to make sure that the pack is not too cold or too hot.

Try alternative therapies


Alternative therapies are not for everyone, but many people find relief from joint pain at their physiotherapist, chiropractor, massage therapist or acupuncturist. Before beginning, though, make sure that you're comfortable with the therapist and that you've spoken to your doctor about the type of therapy that's right for you.

Reduce stress


Managing pain can take a toll on you. To keep your stress levels down, it's important to exercise, eat right, get enough sleep and learn how to relax. Whether it's taking a walk, enjoying some music or creating some relaxing rituals each night before bedtime (like a warm bath followed by curling up with a book), it's important to de-stress. Learn what works for you -- and stick to it.

Get support

Braces or bandages may be able to give your painful joints some much needed support or extra cushioning. Ask your pharmacist which one he or she recommends to protect your painful joint.
