If you’re among the 52 million Americans with arthritis, you know painfully well how much you rely on your joints for even the simplest things—from crawling out of bed in the morning to--taking off your shoes at night.
What can you do if you have joint pain?
Beyond taking medications or naturopathic supplements for mild pain, here are a few tips:
Eat right. Eat foods that fight inflammation such as Salmon or Omega-3 fish oil supplement, Broccoli, avocados, berries, kale, apples, or red grapes
Stop flare-ups. Cut back on foods that can cause inflammation, such as Tomatoes, White flour and Fats high in Omega-6 such as corn oil
Gear up. Wear shoes with good support. Use braces, walkers or other aids to help you get around.
Get moving. Talk with your doctor about activities that can strengthen your muscles and take stress off your joints.
If simple actions don’t give you relief, surgery may be an option. Take the next step at www.peacehealth.org/ortho.
