Health Tip: Ease Arthritis Pain With Warm Water

When joints are stiff and sore, warm water can be just what the doctor ordered.

Here’s how to reap the benefits of warm water, courtesy of the Arthritis Foundation:

  • Make the water between 92 degrees and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use a warm tub (or pool) to do some stretching. Place a tennis ball beneath the small of your back in the bathtub and roll it gently along the bottom of the tub.
  • Soak in a bath with Epsom salts. But people with diabetes should avoid too much salt, which could trigger insulin production.
