Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2015 -- Arthritis sufferers are often forced to try various methods to manage their daily pain, while attempting to maintain their usual quality of life. In addition to pharmaceutical drugs and herbal supplements, many are now also embracing the age of technology and turning to online pain management tools.
In keeping with the new trend, the Arthritis Foundation provides guidelines on their website about the different varieties of online pain management tools that arthritis sufferers can use. There are several types of tools available, with several of them reported to have helped sufferers manage their pain better.
"These tools are created to be user-friendly, so anyone, regardless of their technical knowledge and skills, should be able to use them without many problems," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "The aim of these tools is to help people identify and understand symptoms, as well as track their daily activities."
According to the Arthritis Foundation, these tools can allow individuals to visually see the impact of their actions on a daily basis. Many will offer instant results, which could help sufferers understand how their actions cause certain symptoms.
Some experts believe there are many benefits to using these online tools. According to sufferers who have already used such tools, it has helped them see the connection between what they do and how they feel. Many claim it has also enabled them to learn about their pain trends over time, and encouraged the practice of self-management routines.
"With the use of these tools, sufferers are able to track their stress levels, sleep quality, nutrition, physical activities, pain, fatigue and medication, all of which can affect certain symptoms," added O'Sullivan.
These tools come in the form of an app for both computers and smartphones. They are often free to use and are regularly updated with the newest data. The Arthritis Foundation recommends the Track+React app as one of the best choices.
However, experts warn that there is no substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. They say that these are the most important factors in safely managing joint pain. Some also suggest the use of natural supplements such as glucosamine to help the body maintain healthy joints (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=glucosamine).
