It is important to discuss your symptoms and get advice from your doctor. He or she may suggest treatments for arthritis, including medication and physiotherapy.
Cold compresses to relieve inflammation and swelling and warm compresses to relax muscles and relieve pain may help.
Engaging in physical activity, including moderate exercise, can help strengthen muscles, improve mobility and reduce pain.
Maintain a healthy weight, as excess weight can increase pressure on joints.
Use supportive devices, such as canes or orthopedic insoles, to reduce pressure on your joints.
Your doctor may recommend medications to reduce inflammation and pain. These may be non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or other medications depending on the type of arthritis.
Professional physiotherapy can help develop a personalised programme of exercises and treatments to relieve pain.
