Lifestyle and Home Remedies

Lifestyle changes are mainly preferred for joint inflammations and osteoarthritis.  They include:

  • Exercise – Performing regular exercises improves the flexibility of the joints. Water aerobics or swimming can be a very good choice.
  • Weight Loss – Enrolling in weight loss techniques helps as the program increases the mobility of the joints and therefore the joint injury can be limited in the future.
  • Cold and Heat Compress – Using ice packs or heating pads help in relieving the joint pains.
  • Assistive Devices – Devices like raised toilet seats, walkers or canes help to protect the joints and this can make you perform daily activities in a better way.
