Self Help tips for coping with Osteoarthritis

As with any medical condition, having a plan of action for controlling your arthritis can only help you deal with the effects on a day to day basis.
These three tips are a great start.
Enlist the help of healthcare professionals to help monitor your condition, develop strategies to reduce pain & improve function and to modify your self-help strategies as necessary.
Medical doctors are sometimes inadequately trained to provide modern approaches to diet, exercise & activity modifications. Chiropractors, physiotherapists, kinesiologists, massage therapists and trainers are often best equipped to develop & help you apply modern, evidence-based, active & effective programs of self-care.

Exercise may be the last thing you want to do when your arthritis hurts, but many studies show that physical activity is one of the best ways to improve your quantity of life.
Exercise boosts your energy levels & also strengthens your muscles & bones, and helps to keep your joints flexible. Resistance training helps build stronger muscles to support & protect joints affected by arthritis.

Your mental outlook can have a big impact on how you feel & how well you are able to function. Every day, try to do something you enjoy. spend time with friends & develop interests that you can do even with arthritis.

Focus on your abilities rather than your disabilities.

These are just some of the ways you can ease osteoarthritis symptoms on your own!

Yours in health and wellness,
