Healthy joints are essential for an active life. Joints form the connections between bones. They provide support and help you move. Any damage or inflammation to the joints from disease or injury can cause a lot of pain and interfere with your quality of life.
Understanding Joint Pain
Joint pain is a deep, localized type of pain that is extremely common. It can run the gamut from slightly irritating to completely debilitating. If it’s acute, it may only last a few weeks. With chronic joint pain, it may be several weeks or months before the pain subsides.
Many different conditions can lead to pain in the joints; these include osteoarthritis, arthritis, bone cancer, gout, strains, muscle sprains, and other injuries. Joint pain can affect any part of the body, but the most common complaints are painful knees, shoulders, hands, and ankles. As people age, joints become more susceptible to pain and inflammation, which is why it’s important to learn to manage the discomfort.
Treating Joint Pain Naturally
Whatever the cause, there are several natural ways to alleviate joint pain. You should consult your doctor before starting any pain management therapies; they will be able to diagnose and treat the cause of your joint pain. Here are five ways to ease discomfort when your joints are aching:
- Physical therapy: Physical therapy and non-intensive exercises can strengthen the muscles around the pained joint. After working with a physical therapist, you may be able to better stabilize the joint and increase your range of motion.
- Losing weight: If you are overweight, losing weight can remove some of the pressure that’s been put on your aching joints.
- Extra support: If daily activities (or light exercise) are too painful, you can wrap the joint with a brace or splint to give it some additional support.
- Medication and injections: Although these aren’t a natural option, a doctor may recommend medicine or a steroid injection to further reduce the inflammation surrounding your joints.
On top of these methods, applying heat can also provide temporary relief, making daily activities more bearable. Doctor D. Schwab’s Weh Weh® Natural Pain Relief Oil uses natural ingredients to warm the skin and ease painful joints.
The oil’s active ingredient, capsaicin, is derived from chili peppers and clinically proven to help alleviate joint pain. The heat from the capsaicin stimulates and then decreases pain signals to the brain, desensitizing your brain’s reaction to the pain. The capsaicin, combined with essential oils like geranium, chamomile, bergamot, eucalyptus, tea tree, and sage, helps combat inflammation and ease discomfort. It also uses lavender, rosemary, and sage oils to add a soothing aroma, while it goes to work to deliver pain relief.
Because essential oils are fat soluble, the body can more readily absorb and utilize the ingredients more effectively. The Weh Weh® Oil is highly concentrated and extremely potent; you only need to use a small amount before you start feeling its warming effects.
To start experiencing relief, place just a few drops onto your aching joints then massage the oil into your skin. The skin will immediately warm to release any pain or pressure. Once it’s applied, it’s important to immediately wash your hands, since the active ingredients can irritate more sensitive areas (like your face or eyes) and any excess can stain clothing.
