Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis pain and has been reported to affect over 60% of adults 60 and over. Hip arthritis is caused when the protective cartilage (the slick, cushioning surface on the ends of bones) wears to the point that bone rubs against bone, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. Arthritis in the hip can combine joint pain with joint stiffness which can greatly impact mobility and every day in-home activities. Fortunately, there are simple changes you can make around your house to help minimize your arthritis joint pain and maintain more regular activity.
When you have arthritic hip pain, simply standing up from a low chair or toilet can be a painful ordeal. EasierLiving has great solutions to help. Options to make getting up from a chair easier include raising the chair, adding a chair support handle or even special lift assistance chairs. Similar solutions work great in the bathroom as well, including discrete raised toilets, toilet handles and grab bars. Getting out of bed can also be made easier with bed support rails. Simply adding these solutions to your home will help you maintain your independence, and stay more active.
Conservative treatment for hip arthritis typically includes some combination of the following: application of heat or ice, over-the-counter pain medications, and using aids to help with every day activities. EasierLiving has specific solutions for Hot and Cold Therapy for hip arthritis including Hip ActiveWrap, Hot Packs and Cold Packs.
Because living with hip arthritis and joint discomfort can interfere with your daily routine, EasierLiving also offers a wide range of professional quality aids to make daily activities like bathing and dressing easier: bathing and dressing arthritis products.
