#1 Topical medication
#2 Warm water
Aching joints benefit tremendously from warm water, as this has a soothing and relaxing effect. You can choose to swim in a heated pool or, if you do not have the time to go out, a warm (not hot!) bath can do wonders for your joints. A warm bath is best taken right before going to bed, as this will help you sleep better throughout the night (reduced risk of waking up due to the pain). It is a well-known fact that warm applications are recommended for aching joints, so you can also use a heating pad.
Since ancient times, herbal remedies have been used to ensure both joint and bone health. You can take them as such or apply the desired herbal remedies directly on the affected joints. The most recommended solutions nclude turmeric, krill oil and ginger. Keep in mind that you can take them in different forms. For example, turmeric is available in a liquid form providing maximum absorption. The biggest advantage of these remedies is that they do not have any known side-effects, as opposed to medication.
