Anti-Inflammatory Tips to Alleviate Joint Pain

With the colder days and nights quickly approaching, your joints begin to pay the price. Whether you or a loved one suffers from painful inflammation, it can be controlled through proper diet, exercise, and appropriate care from our multi-disciplinary team at Peak Medical.

Keep Moving
Consider different methods to sustain your range of motion to your joints. We recommend low impact aerobic exercises, such as swimming, dancing, yoga, or weight lifting.

Eat More Omegas
Omega 3-fatty acids have shown to help arthritis by reducing inflammation and stiffness. Our bodies cannot produce these fatty acids on their own, so we must acquire them from nutritional sources in the form of EPA and DHA. Incorporate nuts, fish, chia, and flax seeds into your diet to reap their anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular benefits.

Turmeric and Ginger
Turmeric is an herb known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Numerous clinic studies have shown that curcumin, a principle of turmeric, provides pain relief comparable to ibuprofen. In addition, ginger root has been associated with relieving inflammation. Consider adding a dash of turmeric or grating ginger into a meal daily to help fight inflammation.
