Arthritis joint pain can significantly impact the way people live, limiting movement and even adding stress and anxiety as everyday activities become more difficult.

While medical options have become more varied and researched, many people still look to natural remedies and lifestyle changes that can help them to manage their arthritis joint pain.

Here are eight natural options to discuss with your healthcare provider that may lessen your pain:

1. Lose weight – The less weight that your joints are supporting, the better it is for them, WebMD said. This is particularly true of osteoarthritis, which typically develops in people over 50 from the normal wear-and-tear on their joints. “Over time, that extra weight makes you much more prone to developing arthritis and can cause arthritis to progress much more rapidly, leading to much more pain once it has developed,” the site said.

2. Exercise – Low-impact exercise such as swimming, weight training, and yoga can help your joints maintain flexibility and strength, and can also help with losing weight, The Mayo Clinic said.

3. Taking glucosamine – While glucosamine is a well-known supplement supposed to help with joint health, Health magazine said it’s important to differentiate what kind of glucosamine you take for osteoarthritis. Most supplements in the United States are glucosamine hydrochloride, which has not been shown to help. However, taking glucosamine sulfate has shown to be a benefit for osteoarthritis sufferers, the magazine said.

4. Turmeric/Curcumin – One study, quoted by the Arthritis Foundation, found this supplement to be effective long-term in reducing pain and improving function for osteoarthritis and also reducing joint pain and swelling in patients with active rheumatoid arthritis.

5. Gamma Lenolenic Acid – This omega-6 fatty acid was found in one trial to improve joint pain, stiffness, and grip strength in rheumatoid arthritis patients, the Arthritis Foundation said. Another study found that, combined with fish oil, it reduced the need for other pain relievers.

6. Heat and cold – In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, cold can help with joint swelling and inflammation, while heat relaxes sore muscles and gets the blood flowing, WebMD reported.

7. Acupuncture – Acupuncture studies for combating osteoarthritis pain have shown that it can reduce back pain and other joint pain, WebMD said.

8. Ginger – Studies cited by the Arthritis Foundation have found taking ginger to be effective in reducing rheumatoid arthritis inflammatory reactions and also that it could be as effective as ibuprofen for knee and hip pain associated with osteoarthritis.
