Arthritis is one of the leading causes of pain and disability worldwide. There are thousands of search engine results about alleviating arthritis pain. How will you know which one will work for your senior?
The answer is to keep trying things out. Don’t worry. Amour Healthcare Services has listed safe tips that your loved one can surely try out. Take a look:
- Get educated
There are different types of arthritis, and each one has its own way of alleviating the pain. If your loved one is under Skilled Nursing, you can ask their caregiver for some help in finding effective remedies.
- Keep it moving
Exercise and stretching can help keep your loved one’s joints and muscles strong. These also help reduce stiffness and pain and improve range of motion. If your senior needs supervision, you can rely on our Home Care services to do just that.
- Practice good posture
We’ve all felt aches after sitting like a pretzel. Not only can this destroy your posture, but it can also put you at a higher risk of arthritis. If posture is something your senior struggles with, our Healthcare Services in San Antonio, Texas has physical therapy services available for him or her.
