Rheumatoid Arthritis Hip Pain Symptoms That Will Shock You!

Arthritis Hip Pain Symptoms

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that affects over one million people living in the United States. It’s not curable, and is thought to be caused by hormones, genetics and environmental factors, although nobody knows really for sure what the cause is. Rheumatoid arthritis most notoriously affects the hands and the wrists as well as other smaller joints in the body. But, it can also affect larger joints as well, including the knees, shoulders and hips.

Neck And Upper Back Pain Relief – Acupuncture Vs Cryotherapy Sauna

Upper Back Pain Relief

For people who spend their work days sitting at a computer, or truck drivers who spend many hours on the road, one occupational hazard associated with some of the most common jobs is back discomfort, particularly upper back and neck pain. The question of how to relieve back pain is most commonly answered with medications or massage. However, prescription and even over-the-counter medications can have short and long term side effects, and massages only provide temporary relief, if any at all. One new potential alternative treatment for neck and upper back pain relief is whole body cryotherapy. It’s less well known that other alternative treatments like acupuncture, but when compared side by side, the use of cryo treatment for neck and upper back may be a superior solution to the needle based…

Most Effective Chronic Lower Back Pain Relief – Hot Or Cold Therapy?

Chronic Lower Back Pain

There is little evidence to support the use of cold therapy for chronic lower back pain. Heat, particularly moist heat, is more commonly recommended, although cold may be employed in the case of inflammation or a back injury. However, whole body cryotherapy is looking to dismiss the notion that hot therapy can’t be beat for back pain, or chronic pain in general, by promoting a trifecta of beneficial changes within the body. Wondering what is cryotherapy? Well, it’s the practice of rapidly cooling the surface of the skin to incredibly low temperatures for a short period of time without incurring tissue damage. Participants enter a cryochamber or a cryo sauna and, with protected hands and feet, remain in motion while liquid nitrogen is pumped into the chamber or cryo sauna unit….

Osteoarthritis of the Knee

It’s very difficult to compare physiotherapy to cryotherapy, as physiotherapy is a medical treatment option and Whole Body Cryotherapy is considered an alternative treatment. Both have their value in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee, but not necessarily in the same ways. Physiotherapy is geared toward the long term treatment of osteoarthritis and encompasses the teaching of ways to minimize stress on the joints while increasing the range of motion through exercise and manipulation. Other benefits include learning about proper footwear and home care pain relief techniques to reduce arthritis in knee symptoms. What physiotherapy is not, however, is necessarily a means for pain management. There is no denying that in the long term, physiotherapy can contribute to less muscle and joint pain through physical therapy and education, but this can be…
