These natural therapies may be able to alleviate some of your arthritis symptoms while also preventing the disease from worsening.
Heat enhances circulation and suppleness, making it easier to move around.
If you have high blood pressure or heart disease, you should avoid using hot tubs or saunas.
By numbing nerve endings, the cold slows circulation, reduces swelling and dulls the pain. Wrap ice, a frozen vegetable bag, or a store-bought cold gel pack in a towel and apply for up to 20 minutes. A full or partial ice bath is another alternative.
Use caution while applying cold or heat. Both can harm your skin.
Make sure the massage is safe for you by seeing your doctor. If you’re having a flare-up, your joints are unusually sensitive, or you have a history of blood clots in your legs, you shouldn’t receive a massage.
