Health Tip: Massage Arthritis Pain

(HealthDay News) -- Medication can help ease arthritis pain, but a gentle massage can also provide relief.

The Arthritis Foundation has this advice:
  • If you start to feel pain or discomfort while massaging the arthritic area, stop right away.
  • Avoid massaging any joints that are swollen or very painful.
  • Use lotion or massage oil on your skin.
  • If you massage using a menthol gel, make sure to wash it all off before you apply any heat to the area. This will help prevent burns.
  • If you go to a professional masseuse, make sure he or she has experience in working with people who have arthritis.
