Relieving osteoarthritis with relaxation therapy

The close link between the body and the mind can be seen clearly in relaxation therapy. For people with osteoarthritis, relaxation can mean less pain as well as a calmer disposition.

Try these relaxation techniques to improve your overall wellbeing:

Progressive Muscle Relaxation: Focus on tensing and then relaxing the muscles in the body. One method is to start by tensing the muscles in your toes, then progressively work your way up to your neck and head.

Visualisation: Picture peaceful images to take your mind to a place of peace and tranquillity. It may help if you close your eyes, sit in a quiet spot and loosen any tight clothing.

The benefits of relaxation therapy include:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Increased blood flow to major muscles
  • Reduced muscle pain or tension and relief from chronic pain
  • Improved concentration
  • Reduced anger and frustration
  • More confidence to handle problems

For people with osteoarthritis, the good news is that the pain relief provided by relaxation therapy can be maintained after the therapy has stopped. When practised regularly, relaxation therapy can boost your physical and mental health.

Always read the label before use.
