How to ease the bouts of pain during osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease. It is caused due to wear and tear on the joints because of ageing or improper alignment. Treatment involves a combination of lifestyle changes and acupuncture that help to reduce pain and speed healing. Medications can treat the pain, but they have serious side-effects that can affect you long-term. At Nirvana Naturopathy & Retreat, we recommend natural remedies to help manage and ease the bouts of pain during OA. Our remedies also prevent OA from becoming worse.

Here, take a look below at some of the natural remedies that our naturopathy doctors at our wellness and retreat centre in India suggest guests with OA.

#Hot and cold compress: This is extremely beneficial when it comes to pain. They do not cause any kind of side-effects. Heat is very helpful for the stiffness of the joints, while cold compresses help in joint pain. Moreover, compresses can also reduce spasms or muscle pain around a joint.

#Green tea: As you must already know that naturopathy believes in healing from within. So, by drinking green tea, you can reduce inflammation and also reduce the need to depend on medications. There are also several studies that prove green tea helps to increase cartilage protection.

#Turmeric: The active compound in turmeric is curcumin. Its helps OA in several ways. Several studies show that turmeric has anti-inflammatory compounds. It helps to decrease stiffness and pain during OA flare-ups.

#Lifestyle changes: At our naturopathy center in Mumbai, we always encourage people to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. You need to pay special attention to eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly and maintaining a stable weight. This helps in improving joint function and health. With time, the muscles that are stabilizing your joints will become strong and able to protect your joints against damage. Some of the exercises that you can indulge in to improve flexibility and resistance are walking, swimming and yoga.
