Different Types of Alternatives Treatments
These Alternative treatments protect your joints from Arthritis. Arthritis treatment will depend on what joint was affected, what kind of arthritis it is, and the medical history of the patient. As such, there is no tried-and-true formula to treat the condition; instead, each program is devised to fit the unique needs of each patient. However, the goal of all kinds of arthritis treatment is to reduce the pain and inflammation, as well as to prevent lasting damage to the affected joint. Homeopathic and natural remedies can also be applied to relieve the symptoms of severe rheumatism arthritis.
There are several exercises specifically designed for each joint, such as for neck, girdle, shoulder, wrists, ankles, or spine. Exercises done in water are the best for rheumatoid arthritis patients to apply minimum strain on the joints. A warm hydrotherapy pool is the best place to do exercises for rheumatoid arthritis for this very purpose. Water provides the necessary buoyancy to remove pressure from the joints and it also provides resistance which tones the muscles. Aerobic exercises like biking, dancing and walking are also good because they help to control weight and include the movement of whole body.
Acupuncture is also considered to be one of the best natural remedies for RA. With the help of stainless steel needles, major pathways or meridians, are stimulated in this technique. Traditional acupuncture practitioners claim that this cures the imbalance of energy, named ‘qi’, thus boosts immunity and brings about relief. While some doctors believe that with acupuncture, pain-blocking chemicals called endorphins are triggered and pain relief is brought about.
