are performed, you should not exceed the pain threshold.

For osteoarthritis of the hand, ultrasound therapy and laser therapy are effective, which, unlike the other device therapies, have a rather superficial effect.
Paraffin baths are very effective in relieving joint swelling in fingers and hands.

Alternative medical practices such as acupuncture and yoga can improve joint mobility and also reduce or prevent pain.

– immobilization of the affected area If the pain is very pronounced, the affected area
must be immobilized either with a splint or a bandage. However, immobilization of the joint should be carried out only in case of unbearable pain.

– Rest
One of the best ways to relieve joint pain is to maintain rest.
Thanks to rest, the body draws the energy to repair the damage naturally.
After a period of exercise and training, an adequate rest allows the body to balance the workload and avoid potential joint discomfort.

Diet and nutrition for joint pain

Nutrition is one of the most important forms of treatment for joint pain.
There are two types of natural nutrition (without processed products) that have cured many people:

  1. Blood group diet – the basis is formed by protein-rich foods and vegetables. Depending on which blood group you belong to, there are allowed and not allowed foods. As long as the symptoms persist, you should definitely try to eliminate one food after another from the diet plan to find out which one harms you.
  2. The diet recommended by naturopaths and hygienists is vegan with a raw food content of at least 50%. In this way, the body can quickly digest food, intestinal fermentation and rot are avoided.

These two diets allow weight loss and reduction of joint inflammation because the toxins that cause the diseases that circulate in the blood decrease.

Natural remedies for joint pain

Hyaluronic acid is the main component of synovial fluid, which is naturally found in the body.
Hyaluronic acid:

  • lubricates the joints,
  • reduces and prevents inflammation.

The result is a freely movable and painless joint that is able to prevent further progressive degeneration.
For years, doctors have used hyaluronic acid to reduce symptoms of osteoarthritis.
Today there are supplements that have a pretty good effect.

Glucosamine sulfate is a major ingredient for cartilage growth and joint health. Glucosamine sulfate is not to be confused with glucosamine HCL, which is less effective.
Glucosamine sulfate has a higher quality and has proven to be an important component of supplements.
Chondroitin sulfate is another important component of the joints, because it serves to prevent the onset of osteoarthritis and other degenerative diseases of the bone.

Homeopathic remedies
Homeopathy uses the Arnica montana, which has an anti-inflammatory effect on the joints.
