Dealing with Joint Pain? Here are 5 things you must do right now!
Till we are healthy and can move around at will, we do not realize how precious our joints are. We take things for granted until normal activities like standing, walking etc. become a chore. Joint pain can be a huge obstacle in living life to the fullest.
So what should you do if you are dealing with joint pain?
In addition to seeing your doctor, here are the things you need to do:
1.Cut back on physically taxing tasks
I know it may sound counter-intuitive but it is important. It is a non-negotiable part of your recovery. Most of the times we get joint pains because of continually disregarding the needs of our body. The life moves on a fast lane for most of us so slowing down is the only option. Listen to your body. Give it adequate rest. Because rest in the initial phase of joint pain can bring a lot of relief. The pain may vanish.
2. Look at your Calcium, Vitamin D and Potassium levels
Of course you need to get these tests done to check if a deficiency of these essential nutrients is leading to the weakening of your joints (leading to joint pain). Calcium, Vitamin D and Potassium are important for bone health. Any deficiency or excess of these nutrients can lead to joint problems. In these cases, nutritional supplement can prove beneficial. In case of low Vitamin D levels, some exposure to the morning or evening sun can also help.
3. Check your medical history
A lot of the diseases we face are the banes of the modern world. But unfortunately some of the diseases are hereditary. If anyone in your family has a history of joint pains, get yourself tested. Since you are at an increased risk by birth, you cannot afford to ignore any joint pain. It may develop into more threatening disease if left untreated.
4. Practice Yoga
In the first point I asked you to limit physical tasks and now I am asking you to do Yoga? Precisely. Yoga is really good for joints. It helps stretch the muscles and also improve joint health. Sign up with a certified practitioner and get a personalized sequence of Yoga poses to bring relief in joint pain and also improve joint flexibility.
5. Choose your options
From anti-inflammatory medicines like Sallaki to surgery there are many ways to deal with different forms of joint pains. If you have just developed joint pains and they are recurring periodically, start with taking rest and massaging the joint area lightly with a Massage oil or Sallaki liniment (unless swollen or tender then visit a doctor). If you are in the intermediate stage, meaning you have been experiencing joint pains for a while, then analgesic, anti-inflammatory medicines like Sallaki, Sallaki Plus, Sallaki 400 or Sallaki 600 can help. If you cannot function properly and the pain has become unbearable, then consult with a doctor for surgery.
There are many ways you can deal with joint pain. But deal with it. Do not ignore it because it gets worse as it progresses.
