HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY OSTEOARTHRITIS?
Arthritis is described as the inflammation and stiffness of joints. Though there are over 100 types of arthritis, common symptoms include a dull ache or burning sensation, swelling and stiffness.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which affects the whole joint including the bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. Frequent areas affected are the knees, hips, fingers and the big toe. Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports and braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms of osteoarthritis and provides relief and stability.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY OSTEOARTHRITIS
- Physical activity. Studies show that gentle exercise such as walking can help reduce pain. Strengthening exercises build muscles around OA-affected joints, easing the burden on those joints and reducing pain.
- Weight management. Excess weight causes additional stress to weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees, feet and back. Losing weight can help people with Osteoarthritis reduce pain and limit further joint damage.
- Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises such as yoga, tai chi.
- Support and brace. A Bauerfeind brace offers enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression, which targets specific joints and relieves pain.

Great to have Manly Sea Eagles player Brendan Elliot come in earlier this month for some extra support for his shoulder, hamstring and some pretty serious compression gear for recovery 💪 . . . #brendanelliot #manlyseaeagles #rugbyleague #rugby #aussiefootball #bauerfeind #bauerfeindaustralia #motionislife #football #league #vip #gym #rugbyplayer #rugbyfamily #sport #rugbylife #workout #nrl
