Pain Relief Therapy
Therapy can also help relieve arthritic pain. Physical therapy can reduce joint tenderness and swelling, and hot and cold therapy can also make a world of difference for people with arthritis. Joint stiffness can be reduced by taking long, warm showers or baths while pain, inflammation and swelling can be relieved by using different kind of cold treatments such as applying ice packs or bags of frozen vegetables on painful joints.

Significant arthritic pain can be reduced by massaging muscles and joints. According to a recent study by the Arthritis Foundation, regular massage reduces joint stiffness which leads to a significant reduction in pain for arthritis sufferers.
Our Cyclo-Therapy units have a special suspension system which generates three dimensional “Cycloidal Vibration” in a circular movement. This causes the energy to penetrate gently and deeply into the body, providing a deep massage to the affected areas and reducing joint pain & swelling.

Extra weight can have a huge impact on arthritic pain. Your joints, especially your knees, hips, and feet can suffer from the strain of extra weight.
By losing weight you can reduce pressure from your joints, which will help improve your mobility, reduce joint pain, and prevent injuries.
Exercise can play a vital role in treating your arthritic pain as there are more benefits to exercise than just losing weight. Regular low-impact exercises such as swimming and water aerobics can strengthen muscles, reduce stress, increase energy levels, and improve sleep patterns.
There is some promising evidence, with limited research, that acupuncture can help with arthritis symptoms. Acupuncture alleviates pain by bringing change into painful sensations that are sent to your brain from damaged tissues and by stimulating your body’s own pain-relieving hormones (endorphins and encephalins).
Although acupuncture can help relieve arthritis pain, please be sure that you find a licensed and certified acupuncturist to perform this treatment.
