What is Joint Protection?
Joint Protection is a set of principles designed to keep your joints safe during daily activities. Looking after your joints is essential for managing a variety of conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hypermobility Syndromes (like HSD, EDS & Marfan) and repetitive strain injuries. Joint Protection tips include; respecting your pain, avoiding deforming positions, sticking to stable positions, spreading the load, pacing activities, splinting and more.
How does the appointment work?
In an appointment via video chat I’ll explain the each of the ‘rules’ of joint protection. I can offer tips and help you problem solve any issues too.
Along side generic advice for looking after you joints we can discuss specific activities like walking the dog, doing the washing up and showering.
I can introduce a number of aids and adaptations, tips and tricks to help support you in your daily life.
