What Causes Joint Pain? Get Natural Relief Today

Joint Pain in Huntersville NC

If you’re experiencing joint pain, you know how much you want relief. While you might be tempted to pop a painkiller, we encourage you to first try these natural joint pain remedies:

1. Exercise in the water, doing water aerobics or swimming.

A 2014 review in the journal Physical Therapy found that exercising in water reduces joint pain. The cool water reduces inflammation, and the low-impact exercise is good for your joints. This is an especially good plan for those who typically exercise otherwise and are experiencing exercise-related joint pain and inflammation. Take a break from high-impact exercise or exercise that encourages swelling due to overheating. Instead, cool down in the pool and get some relief.

2. Heat things up.

After that cool dip in the pool, apply a topical cream containing capsaicin (the substance responsible for the heat in chili peppers). A study from Case Western Reserve University found that 80% of people with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis reported experiencing less pain after applying capsaicin cream four times a day for two weeks.

3. Take fish oil supplements.

Fish oil is an anti-inflammatory, and most joint pain is caused by inflammation. A 2015 study found that when people suffering from with osteoarthritis took 1,000 mg of fish oil supplements once a day for 8 weeks, their joint pain decreased.

4. Try acupuncture.

A 2013 research review concludes that acupuncture relieves both joint pain and stiffness. A good acupuncturist can get results in a matter of weeks, and many acupuncturists now take insurance.

5. Stay in alignment.

Joint pain is often caused by misalignment of the spine, resulting in misalignments, pinched nerves, inflammation and rubbing of bone against bone in joints that have lost cushioning between the bones. Regular chiropractic adjustments keep your body aligned and functioning at optimal capacity, reducing the risk of joint pain and inflammation.
