Help Can Be Found To Relieve Travelling Arthritis
This kind of arthritis could start in your upper legs, move to your lower, middle, and then upper back before causing pain in your shoulder blades.
If you have been diagnosed with arthritis of the back, you may find that pain travelling around your body is a regular occurrence.
It is important that, if you are experiencing this kind of pain and have yet to get a diagnosis, you seek medical advice as soon as possible.
The pain you are experiencing may not be arthritis, but can be anything from tendonitis to a kidney or viral infection. Getting medical help as soon as possible will result in a quick diagnosis and the prescription of medication that will quickly help to ease the pain.
If it is arthritis, a prescription anti-inflammatory medication should make the pain more bearable.
As well as the drugs you will be prescribed by your doctor, there are many treatments you can seek out to help with the condition.
You may find that homeopathic supplements, which contain active compounds that can relieve pain, reduce swelling and potentially restore joint cartilage, will help.
Hot oil baths and oil massages can give you some relief, but you must be sure to tell a masseuse about your condition, as a regular massage may do more harm than good.
Finally, some types of exercise can help to relieve back pain. While strenuous work outs are no good, gentle exercise such as yoga, swimming and light weight training, could help with posture and relieve inflammation in the joints.
Travelling arthritis should not be confused with migrating arthritis with which the sufferer can have pain in one part of the body followed by an identical pain in another part.
