What can help?
1. Staying active
Gentle, low impact and regular exercise, like swimming, builds the muscles that support the joints, which can help keep pain at bay.
2. Eat right
Eating fruit and vegetables and keeping to a healthy weight will reduce the strain on your joints.
3. Topical treatments*
NSAID gels (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) applied directly to your joints can help ease pain and reduce swelling.
4. Combination therapy*
Try a combined approach using pharmacy-strength medication, with drug-free remedies like a TENS machine for better results. Speak to your Pharmacist for advice.
5. Start a pain diary
To help identify your triggers you can use a pain diary to record your symptoms. Pick up a FREE pain diary at your local LloydsPharmacy and discuss with your Pharmacist. *Subject to suitability
