AthletiCo Offers Occupational Therapy Tips for Managing Arthritis
Date:4/7/2010

April is National Occupational Therapy Month

(Vocus) April 7, 2010 -- During the month of April, AthletiCo Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy celebrates National Occupational Therapy Month. Whether it’s the hand, wrist, elbow, or shoulder, our occupational/hand therapists are the premier specialists in treating upper extremity diagnoses.

Occupational/hand therapists treat various upper extremity diagnoses, and one common medical condition they treat is arthritis. Known as inflammation of the joint, arthritis may affect multiple joints and often causes pain and stiffness that can affect activities of daily living. AthletiCo’s occupational therapists have been trained on joint protection and work modification techniques to assist in the treatment of arthritis. For those diagnosed with arthritis, protecting joints is important.

Here are some simple tips to protect joints:

 
  • Keep Moving: Strengthening muscles around the joint helps to protect them. Having an exercise program can also help to reduce pain, improve range of motion, and reduce fatigue.
  • Use Larger Joints: Use larger joints to carry/lift heavy items to avoid excessive stress on smaller joints. For example, place your purse on your shoulder rather than holding it with your hand, or use your palm rather than your fingers to lift items.
  • Listen to your Body: Pain after activity could indicate you have overstressed
