I have written these arthritis articles to provide some information for people on how to manage everyday activities in spite of pain and stiffness. Here's the next one, Arthritis and Home Maintenance. This article gives some advice on how to adapt activities like home repairs and yardwork. I hope it is valuable to all you do-it-yourselfers.
Here's one home maintenance item I wouldn't be without - a self propelled lawn mower. If you have one of these, try pushing it without the propulsion for a couple of turns, then turn on the propulsion. Notice the difference? My shoulders and wrists just can't take it unless the propulsion is on. Of course, for you lucky people with riders, this doesn't matter! If you have a condo, it really doesn't matter! Anyway, click on the link to read the article.
