Looking After Your Joints

Joint Care

When you have joint pain doing everyday tasks often makes the pain feel worse. You can reduce the strain on your joints by changing the way you do everyday things.

Joint care doesn’t mean not doing anything, it is doing things differently to reduce strain on your joints. This will help reduce pain and stiffness and help to make every day tasks easier.

Everyone should look after their joints, but it is especially important for people with arthritis.

These videos will help explain how to care for your joints so that you can reduce pain, feel less tired and manage every day tasks

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.
