Health Tip: Better Sleep Can Mean Less Arthritis Pain


(HealthDay News) -- Getting plenty of sleep each night can help you better manage arthritis pain, the Arthritis Foundation says.

Here are recommendations to help you get enough rest:

  • Exercise regularly at a moderate intensity, and remember to schedule it well before bedtime.
  • Don't consume caffeine or alcohol, particularly close to bedtime.
  • Create a consistent schedule of sleep and wake times, and stick to it daily.
  • Soak in a warm bath before bed, or listen to some soft music.
  • Enjoy quiet time before bed, or read a relaxing book.
  • Don't use sleeping pills, unless your doctor suggests them.
