Tips For Managing Psoriatic Arthritis Pain


What is Arthritis? People think of Arthritis as a wear and tear condition seen in older people. That’s not true! There are different types of Arthritis and can affect people of all ages. It is a condition that involves pain and inflammation in the joints. The fact here is that over 54 million people have Arthritis in the US. The age range is 18-65, and 1 in 4 adults suffer severe pain due to Arthritis. So, it is a critical condition and should not be ignored. Over the counter arthritis pain reliever can provide instant relief but lifestyle changes are crucial to manage the pain in the longer run along with other things.

Let’s check out the tips to help ease joint pain, arthritis symptoms, stiffness, and swelling.

Manage Your Weight

Staying healthy should be the main motto for arthritis patients. Excess weight can have a lot of impact on the joints, especially on hips, knees, and feet. Doctors also recommend losing weight if you are obese or overweight. Losing weight will significantly help you in managing the pain and will prevent further damage to joints. Bringing a change in diet and physical activities might also help manage your weight.

Stay Active

Physical activities and physiotherapy are the most simple and efficient ways to manage arthritis pain. Regularly doing physical activities can improve body function, mood, quality of life and, most importantly, reduce pain. Staying physically active also helps in reducing the risk of heart diseases and diabetes.

Hot and Cold Therapy

Simple and natural treatment to reduce pain! Hot therapy includes taking a hot bath or shower in the morning to ease stiffness. Cold therapy includes wrapping an ice pack or a pack of frozen vegetables in a napkin and applying it on the joints for fast relief. This will help in reducing swelling and inflammation as well. Although, never apply ice directly to the joints.

Follow Healthy Diet

Following a diet that is rich in vegetables, fresh fruits, and whole grains can boost the immune system and improve your overall health. A plant-based diet is full of antioxidants, which helps in significantly reducing inflammation. While if you go for a diet full of meat, saturated fat, sugar-rich meals, etc., it will increase inflammation.

Get Proper Sleep

Sleep is essential for both physical and mental health. While sleeping, the body works hard to regenerate and repair itself. Follow a healthy sleep routine. Go to bed at a scheduled time and try to sleep a minimum for 8 hours at night. Take a warm bath before going to bed as it relaxes your mind and calms you down. If you have difficulty in sleeping, consult a doctor for mild medications.

The tips are simple to follow and can be effective in managing arthritis pain. Incorporating these into your lifestyle will help you live well and fight this condition. However, sometimes it is not enough to treat the severe pain with just these tips. If you or your dear ones have difficulty managing the pain, then immediately consult a doctor for treatment and medications. 

Stay strong! Stay healthy!
