If we don’t use our joints properly we can increase the pain and strain we feel. Over time this can also cause our joints to change shape.
Using joint protection techniques is a great way to relieve pain and reduce the strain we place on our joints. Splinting, using stronger joints and assistive equipment are all examples of joint protection techniques.
Our friends at Versus Arthritis have put together a great online resource which explores a number of different ways we can protect out joints. They also do a fantastic job of explaining what joints are and how they work.
