Ease Joint Pain and Stiffness In The Comfort Of Your Home
Staying warm under the covers during the cooler months can be tempting, especially when, in the current climate, staying indoors has become the new norm. However, if you’re struggling to get up and get going in the mornings due to achy joints and stiffness, we’ve put together our top tips to help you ease joint pain in the comfort of your home.
Roll Out Your Muscles
Daily stretching can do wonders for improving flexibility. It’s important to roll out your muscles to prepare for any form of exercise or movement throughout the day. Consider investing in a foam roller; a handy device to roll out large muscles in your legs and back. You can also pair it with a tennis ball for rolling out smaller muscles in your calves, hips and shoulders to get thoroughly warmed up before exerting energy into your muscles, especially before big stretches and workouts.
Time To Give Your Muscles A Workout
Now that your muscles are warmed up, move into some repetitive stretches such as lunges and side reaches, or try an online yoga class to soften the joints and shake off any persistent stiffness. The internet is overflowing with amazing online classes varying in difficulty, from beginner yoga to barre, pilates and aerobics, all of which provide a great opportunity to stretch the body, loosening stiff muscles and improving flexibility.
Wind Down With A Warm Bath
Treat yourself at the end of the day with a long soak in the bath. Soak in warm water for at least 15 minutes to help relax your muscles and loosen stiff joints. Heat is a great source of relief for achy limbs and can also be a great way to help you wind down and prepare for a good night’s sleep. You can also try adding Epsom Salts or Magnesium flakes to your bath to further encourage your body’s natural healing and recovery process.
