Arthritis can be managed with natural treatments that relieve symptoms and decrease the degeneration process of arthritis. Some of the Naturopathy therapies which we provide to arthritis patients are mentioned below.
Leg Pack - A wet cotton cloth of about 3” width and 2-3 meters length may be wrapped for about 30 minutes to the leg. This cotton pack may be covered with a woollen cloth of same width and length. Ensure that pack should not be very tight. Hot and cold fomentation and affusion to the joint to relieve pain and spasm.
Cold compress to joints helps to treat localized inflammation and pain. A heating compress (pack) is also helpful in relieving pain/stiffness/swelling.
Infra-Red Light therapy involves delivering red, blue, and infrared lights to the skin at therapeutic frequencies.
These three wavelengths have been clinically shown to increase circulation and stimulate the release of nitric oxide to treated areas, thereby increasing cellular metabolism by 150%. This means faster cellular repair, healthier tissues, and a healthier you.
Mustard Knee Pack
Mustard plasters work by generating heat and bringing more blood flow and circulation to the affected area. The heat also helps to fight off infections and brings down the body’s temperature during fever through sweating.
Mustard seeds also have anti-inflammatory properties, which is why they are commonly used to treat arthritis pain and other kinds of pain.
Local Steam - sweating is induced by passing steam over the body part by using a special instrument known as Nadi sweda yantra. The steam is passed through a rubber tube fitted to the instrument and it is an easy method of applying heat to a localized part of a body. It reduces the stiffness of the joints and keeps them mobile and it also removes muscular stiffness & pain.
Gentle manipulation with moderate pressure has been shown to reduce joint pain and stiffness, and even improve range of motion. However, timing is important. Listen to your body. Massage may not be as helpful during a very active flare when joints are especially tender and sensitive.
Best for: osteoarthritis, low back pain, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis
Hot Foot & Arm Bath
Neutral immersion and neutral half–bath with Epsom salt for 15–20 minutes. Contrast foot baths are also very helpful in relieving pain and spasm.
Neutral jet, whirlpool and underwater massages help in relaxing the muscles of joints and also give relief from pain and spasm.
Out of the five constituent elements of this universe mud (earth) has a pivotal role to play in our well being. The dark colour of mud helps in absorbing different colours and conveying them to the body, giving it therapeutic properties. Also, its shape and consistency may be modified with ease, just by changing the water content, which makes it easy to use. A mud pack is advantageous over a cold compress (cold water therapy) as it retains the coolness over a longer period of time. Therefore, it is recommended whenever a prolonged cold application is required.
It relaxes muscles and improves blood circulation. It maintains metabolism rendering positive impact on digestion. It is useful in conditions of inflammation/ swelling and relieves pain.
This form of Chinese medicine involves inserting thin, small needles through the skin at specific acupoints on the body. It is designed to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue, improve blood flow and activate the body’s natural painkillers. Best for osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome.
