Improving Mobility and Strength Can Help You Better Manage Your Arthritis

Arthritis is a common ailment that can drastically impact your quality of life and affect you at any age. According to Kitsap County occupational therapist and Certified Hand Therapist (CHT) Mary Sommer, individuals who focus on improving their range of motion and follow a strength training plan can significantly minimize arthritis symptoms. 

“Individuals suffering from arthritis often tend to avoid certain movements to prevent triggering their pain. Unfortunately, this often contributes to poor mobility which can cause stiff joints and result in chronic discomfort.“ says Sommer. 

Sommer further notes that a CHT can work with you to improve your mobility and strength, and reduce joint pain caused by arthritis in the following ways: 

Increasing range of motion

Maintaining a good range of motion can help patients feel less stiff and makes it easier for them to perform everyday tasks. A CHT can work with you to improve mobility in a way that is safe and comfortable.
