What are some non-drug, lifestyle recommendations to help with pain?
There are several interventions that can help with pain management.
In order to reduce pressure on joints, it is always advisable to maintain a healthy body weight. To obtain a healthy body weight, regular exercise and a balanced diet are essential.
Pillway pharmacists can discuss both exercise and diet to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Furthermore, there are several alternative forms of medicine including massage therapy and acupuncture that can provide effective relief from arthritic pain. Other recommendations include heat/cold therapy.
Can arthritis be managed by over the counter medication?
Arthritis can sometimes be managed with just over the counter medications such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), ibuprofen (Advil), or diclofenac (Voltaren Emulgel).
Pillway offers over the counter medications and can include them with your prescriptions. Just ask your Pillway pharmacist if you would like them included. For all patients on pre-sorted packets, we can also include vitamins and minerals in your packets ensuring you don’t miss a single dose.
