Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/19/2015 -- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and natural supplements such as glucosamine are among the most popular pain relief options for arthritis. Many experts believe that the two can significantly help patients achieve relief from joint pain. However, there are also other things that can make the lives of sufferers easier.
The Arthritis Foundation is now recommending the use of self-help devices for arthritis patients. These devices work by keeping the joints in their best position to help them function well. Self-help devices can be simple objects such as jar openers or other similar items that can be purchased in medical supply stores.
"There are tools at home that arthritis sufferers can use to continue their usual tasks without struggles. For instance, they can use food processors for slicing, or built-up handles and grips to avoid putting stress on finger joints," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to health experts who specialize in treating arthritis patients, sufferers should make their home an arthritis-friendly place. They can do so by installing tub bars and handrails to obtain additional stability when getting in and out of the shower. Other suggestions include using raised toilet seats or chairs that are arthritis-friendly.
In addition to using self-help devices, arthritis sufferers are also advised to make use of a cane if necessary. By having the right cane and using it properly, patients can improve their balance as well as relieve pressure on sore ankles, hips, feet and knees.
Health experts recommend that patients should consider the type and fit of the cane, as well as the proper ways to use it, especially when using stairs. Knowing how to use a cane when ascending or descending stairs can significantly reduce one's risk for injuries. Arthritis patients are warned to practice prudent care in all things that they do to avoid potentially fatal accidents.
Some health professionals also recommend the use of glucosamine supplements to help the body maintain healthy joints. The human body contains naturally occurring glucosamine. However, as a person ages, glucosamine levels also reduce. An increasing number of experts believe that taking the supplement could significantly replenish the lost glucosamine in the body http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4/ie=UTF8?&m=A3OG9DHZ3GI58O&keywords=glucosamine
