Really good group ❤️
Learning to exercise in a pain free range can be difficult if struggling with arthritis. That's where we come in!
One of our occupational or physical therapist can give you exercises to help with your specific pain and joint deformities. By working to strengthening the muscles that support your joints, you can help support them, and then less likely to develop deformities.
o Try doing hand exercises in warm water as this can help relax your hands, make the exercises easier to do and also help to reduce pain.
o Balance rest and exercise.
o Do not do strengthening exercises when you have a flare-up.
o If you get any pain that lasts longer than one hour after exercise, it means the exercise is too stressful. Do not do it again until it is reviewed by your therapist.
o Perform exercises in a pain free range. Stop before the motion gets to the pain.
