Take a warm bath or shower to relieve arthritis pain. Hot water will help you relax your joints and muscles. Give yourself adequate time in the water and ensure that the room has sufficient heat so your muscles do not tense when you get out of the tub. It is shown that humidity and warmth are effective against the symptoms of arthritis. Take a hot shower every morning if you can. Starting your day with a hot shower is a great way to loosen up your joints and help minimize pain throughout the day. A shower is an excellent treatment, because it can cover all your joints. It can be very helpful to treat your arthritis. One way you can try to prevent arthritis is to employ proper typing habits. Be sure your hands are held level to the keyboard and use a wrist support with your mouse. This will reduce strain to your hands and protect problems from developing later. Avoid taking pain killers if the pain from your arthritis isn’t very bad. Pain killers only offer temporary relief, and some are addictive. If your doctor has prescribed these to you and you are going to use them, make sure you use them as the doctor prescribed.

Take a hot shower or bath to soothe your arthritis pain. This heat will help relieve you pain by relaxing your muscles. Moist heating pads can provide similar relief. You can find these in most drug stores, and they may be dampened before use.
