Relieving arthritis or joint pain may be easier than you think!The solutionmay be as simple as paying attention to what you are eating in order to avoid inflammatory foods that often lead to pain. What Inflammatory Foods Lead to Pain? Eating highly processed foods (such as pasta, bread and crackers—especially those containing gluten) creates inflammation inthebody.This inflammation then leads to the actual physical pain that youmay feel in your knees and joints since the joints are particularly vulnerable to inflammation.

Foods with gluten, trans fats, found in snack foods like chips and pastries, and high sugar, that handful of M&M’s from your coworkers desk, all cause inflammation. For many people, dairy products are also inflammatory. Eating these types of foods over a long period of time means more and more inflammation throughout the body and ultimately more pain. While changing your food sounds simple, many need more guidance and support, which is why a nutrition consultation, is often helpful. However, you can take our tips above and start alleviating your pain today!

DETERMINING THE ORIGIN OF YOUR PAIN

Call IN & Win!

Sometimes it happens when a pain develops that you can immediately identify the cause. A new pair of shoes may cause a sharp pain in your heel, or an old chair at work may cause your back to grow sore and uncomfortable as time goes on. But there are other situations in which pain develops, and the cause of the pain is unclear. Different types of bodily pain can tell you different things about your body and overall bodily health. Sometimes, a pain in your arm or your leg may have little to nothing to do with an actual issue in your arm or leg.Physiotherapistsare likewell-traineddetectives when it comes to identifying the causes of pain. A physiotherapistknowsthewaythatthenervoussystem works, making it possible to identify the potential causes of pain, even if the pain is manifesting itself in an unusual or seemingly inexplicable way.

Whether you are suffering from pain in your head, your back, your neck or anywhere else in your body, working with a physiotherapist can help you find the relief you are looking for. Physiotherapists are trained in identifyingand treating thecauseofyourpain,giving you theopportunity toshiftawayfrom theongoinguse of pain medication and instead find relief from your painwithaseriesofstrategies that includestretching, muscle building and flexibility training. Understanding Your Pain When you meet with a physiotherapist to understand where your pain may be coming from, one of the first things you’ll do is have a conversation about your pain. How long you’ve been experiencing pain, where it developed and how the pain manifests itself are all very important distinctions that can help shed some light on what may be causing your discomfort.

WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE HEADING INTO PHYSIOTHERAPY

• Consider exactly where the pain occurs in your body, and research what the different parts of the body are called so that you can have an accurate and helpful conversation about your pain. For example, back pain has a lot of different differentiations, and lumbar pain (which is in the lower back) is frequently caused by factors different from what would cause upper-back or neck pain. • How does the pain feel when it develops? Is it a lingering ache? Is it a sharp stab? Is it more of a tingling feeling? Each of these sensations are actually associated with different types of problems, so describing your pain appropriately may be helpful in determining the best treatment methods for your body’s needs. • What do you think may be causing the pain? Of course, it happens that a pain will develop, and you are dumbfounded as to why, but more often than not, there is something that you think could be influencing it. If the pain started around the same time as a change in environment or life circumstances, then it is worth telling your physiotherapist about the association. Another thing to consider about your pain is whether or not it develops at particular times of the day or year. There are plenty of situations when someone begins to experience pain when the weather starts to change, and it turns out that the pain is a result of arthritis and inflammation.There are other situations in which the pain will develop as a result of prolonged sitting or the opposite — such as when things get crazy at home or at work, and you find that you are not getting as much sleep as usual. Considering any changes in your daily habits or environmental factors can be very helpful in determining what is causing your pain. Regardless of where your pain is, how long you’ve been dealing with it, or how intense the pain feels, the smart thing to do when pain develops is

Spring Break Travel Tips For Families

1. Choose the right destination for your family. Discuss ideas for travel destinations and what to do during your free time; be sure each person has something to look forward to on the trip. All-inclusive resorts are a great option, with activities for kids, spas for parents, and beaches and pools for the whole family to enjoy together. 2. Stick to your budget. Don’t blow your annual vacation budget in March or April if you plan to escape in the summer! Also allot a separate amount of money for the inevitable splurge purchases. 3. Take advantage of travel deals. Research the hotels and resorts in the area to which you’ll be traveling, and compare prices. Oftentimes, simply booking your accommodations in advance can save you big money. 4. Pack the essentials. Be sure to ask what toiletries and other products are provided before packing your bags. 5. Protect yourself and your home. Do not state that your home is vacant during your trip. Instead, tell trustworthy friends and family that you’ll be traveling, and ask them to visit your house once or twice to ensure there is no suspicious activity. 6.Travel on less popular days. Airlinecosts arehigher and traffic is heavier on the weekends. Opt to travel midweek if you can. 7. Make reservations for special experiences. Many attractions allowyou tobuy ticketsonlinebeforehand (usuallyatadiscounted price). If you have plans to dine at a popular restaurant, make reservations at least a month or more in advance. 8. Keep the kids on a routine. Don’t get too far away from your daily habits while traveling. Bedtimes should obviously be extended, but don’t over do it or falling asleep on school nights will be tough once you’re back at home.
