Frequently Asked Questions
How is Arthritis Pain Managed?
Depending on its type and severity, arthritis pain can be managed by an assortment of treatment options. Inflammation and pain caused by fluid buildup in the tissue surrounding the joints can be diminished by icing the affected area. In contrast, heat can be used to increase the circulation around the joints to help repair degenerative tissues. To help temporarily relieve arthritis symptoms, anti-inflammatory medications can be taken. In addition, people suffering from arthritis can find relief through the use of topical creams and pain-relieving medications like aspirin or ibuprofen.
