Christmas is just around the corner. For most people, it’s something to look forward to. Families are reunited, parties abound in every corner, and gifts change hands by the minute. But if you’re an elderly person, the winter is also a dreaded time because the cold weather inadvertently brings your worst enemy with it: arthritis.
Your legs joints start to swell up and you can barely walk because of the pain. Luckily, for every ache, there is always something you can do to help.
One thing to understand about arthritis is that it’s really all about the fluids in the joints. Think of it as something like motor oil. When the oil is warm, it lubricates perfectly, but once the weather gets cold, it thickens and prevents proper movement.
Sometimes Arthritis may not be preventable or curable but in a certain way, the symptoms can be reduced.
Fish oil and Turmeric are known to reduce the symptoms and “oil up” the joint.
A healthy diet low in sugars, drinking plenty of water, no alcohol and not smoking are also known to help. Also, shedding some weight can ease the knee joints.
Another way to aid you legs joints is to use compression socks to support the muscles and veins from toes to knees. By squeezing the lower leg, compression socks aid the blood to flow back from the bottom of the body up to the hart enhancing keeping the muscle and joints oxygenated that helps with arthritis too.
The only downside with compression socks is that they are often made with synthetic materials that, when worn for long periods, can irritate the skin.
Fortunately, not all compression socks are made of nylon. Cotton compression socks offer all the benefits of traditional support stockings with the advantage of being hypoallergenic thanks to their high cotton content. This is the reason why they are preferred by people with sensitive skins, pregnant women or people who simply prefer to wear natural fibers on their bodies.
Cotton compression socks, such as the ones produced by SocksLane, are also naturally breathable, comfortable and fashionable so you can use them every day without people ever noticing that you are wearing medicated socks.
