Looking After Your Joints

Joint Care

Conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis can pain in the joints. When you have joint pain, doing everyday things can be difficult and make the pain feel worse. You can reduce the strain on your joints by changing the way you do everyday things.

This doesn’t mean that you don’t use your joints. By making changes you can reduce the stress and strain on them. This reduces pain and inflammation and can help you feel less tired.

The following videos show how you can reduce strain on your joints.

Doing everyday tasks independently

Our team of Occupational Therapists within the Cardiff and Vale University Health Board have also filmed some videos showing how you can do things differently or use a gadget to help you manage your day to day tasks more easily.
