Tests were done to measure how well the people were doing compared to their initial visit, 4 weeks, 8 weeks and 1 year later. The results were very impressive showing the patients who had hands-on physical therapy, combined with specific exercises had significant improvements in their pain, mobility and function. By 8 weeks, patients were able to walk further and faster with much less or completely resolved pain. Their joint stiffness, aches and mobility had improved by 55% compared to the placebo group who had no treatment. At one year, patients in the treatment group still were doing great in terms of less pain and more mobility. Other benefits included less need for surgery with only 5% of patients in the treatment group having undergone surgery as compared to 20% with the placebo group.

It’s Time To Live Without Arthritis Pain

When it comes to treating arthritis, you may have more options than you realize. There is much you can do to reduce your aches and pains from arthritis while gaining more mobility and function. We offer consistent recommendations for our patients suffering with the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. If you want to know how to relieve and reduce the pain of arthritis, try our physical therapy first. Patients often experience pain from arthritis because of stiff joints, muscles and other tissues. In addition, muscles become weak, therefore not supporting the arthritic joints. The customized treatments at Centra Rehabilitation promote muscle strength, improve range of motion, increase mobility and relieve pain. In addition, coupling your physical therapy with the following can also help you live life to the fullest and get you back to doing the things you love: 1. Education and self-management When your physical therapy is over, your therapist will have equipped you with the knowledge and exercises you need to continue progress on your own. 2. Weight loss Maintaining your recommended weight or losing weight if you are overweight can lessen your pain. Weight loss specifically helps ease pressure on joints such as your hips and knees. 3. Footwear and insoles If arthritis affects your knee, special footwear and insoles can reduce pain and improve walking. 4. Braces Osteoarthritis can cause instability in joints. A knee or back brace can help reduce pain, improve stability and reduce the risk of falling.

The idea is that raw local honey works like a vaccine, introducing small doses of pollen into your system creating immune exposure without the histamine reaction. Over time, as your body creates antibodies to the pollen, it will decrease your overall symptom reaction during allergy season and build up a tolerance to it. While this theory seems to work, those with severe allergies can react to even the smallest doses. For those with severe reactions, it is suggested to avoid this daily routine.
