Persons with arthritis often have trouble with some daily tasks that seem commonplace: cooking and eating meals; bathing; grooming; and getting dressed. Arthritic aids not only ease the pain, but they allow persons with arthritis to join in with everyday activities enjoyed by other people who are not suffering from arthritis.
Living with arthritis can present a wide array of challenges. Some of these challenges may be temporary, following surgery or during periods of flare-ups. Some of these challenges may be life long. Arthritis can create problems with mobility, range of motion, fine motor skills, and cause pain and fatigue that may affect the performance of daily tasks. While surgery, physical therapy and pain management may help some people with some of these issues, for the most part there is no way to remove the cause of the difficulty. Therefore, it is important for the person with arthritis to find solutions to some of these basic problems, and fortunately there are many products available that can help.
