text/0/0 Arthritis will get worse the longer you sit around and baby the pain. Ask your practitioner to give you exercises SPECIFIFCALLY suited to the affected parts of your body. Research has found that range of motion exercises are the most effective for the alleviation of arthritic conditions. GENTLE stretching is absolutely necessary at least three times a week to regain & retain mobility. A bi- weekly session with a physical therapist, and/or a masseuse who specializes in range of motion and joint movements is highly reco- mmended. Acupuncture can also lessen arthritic pain and relax stiff joints. Also, consider con- sulting with a Chiropractor. Remember - KEEP MOVING! ~ text/324/0 FOR ARTHRITIC KNEES Put six ice cubes in zip-lock bag and apply above and below knee for twenty minutes at a time. according to Germantown Medical Center researchers, ice water cools down pain. NOTE: Consider possible emotional causes for your arthritis and any other chronic pain or condition you might be suffering from. A trusted counselor may be of help here. ~ S1000/80 S2000/80 S4000/80 text/339/146 For more information, call the Arthritis Foundation Hotline at 1-800-722-7383. ~ style3 R324/142/628/175
