The pain and stiffness associated with osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are often unbearable. The pain from both of these medical conditions can force some sufferers to avoid walking, exercising, cooking, and most other activities involving movement. Even sitting down to a meal is eliminated due to the pain experienced when holding a regular eating utensil. Ideal ways to solve these problems are to choose one of our adaptive eating utensils with built-up handles or clip-on eating utensils to make eating less painful and more enjoyable. Select one of our lightweight walkers or rollators to help reduce the pain and discomfort when walking. Other arthritis helpers include easy-to-use kitchen gadgets like a cap and bottle opener to assist with opening a medicine bottle or jar of fruit for those with weak or limited hand dexterity. Exercise is the most recommended way to manage the pain and stiffness of arthritis. Medical professionals can’t prescribe it enough. Begin a daily workout routine with one of our pedal exercisers, exercise bike, or exercise pulley. These low-impact exercise tools require the users to workout sitting or standing in place. Our foot gym targets plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and other foot injuries, but why not use it to exercise and strengthen arthritic finger joints? It certainly couldn’t hurt!
