A leading cause of knee pain for older adults is knee arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of knee arthritis pain and has been reported to affect over 60% of adults 60 and over. Osteoarthritis 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. In the knee this combination of pain and stiffness can greatly impact daily mobility both around the house and outside the house.
When you have arthritic knee pain, standing up from a low chair or toilet can be a painful ordeal. EasierLiving has great solutions to help. Options for getting up from a chair include raising the chair height, adding a chair support handle or even using special lift assistance chairs. Similar solutions work great in the bathroom, including discrete raised toilets, toilet handles and grab bars. Getting out of bed can also be made easier with bed support rails. Adding these solutions to your home will help you maintain your independence, stay safer and more active.
Conservative treatment for knee arthritis typically includes some combination of the following: application of heat or ice, over-the-counter pain medications, and the use of a splint or brace to support and rest the knee. EasierLiving has specific solutions for Hot and Cold Therapy for knee arthritis including Cryotherm Knee Wraps and Bed Buddy Comfort Wraps.
When it comes to knee braces, stabilizers, and compression supports for knee arthritis, we selected three of the best solutions here on the right of this page. These supports are designed to help maintain proper joint alignment, support weak muscles, provide gentle, soothing compression (some models) and help prevent unwanted motion. Proper alignment is important for pain management and to help slow the symptom progression. If your doctor or physical therapist has prescribed a gentle strengthening program, the right support will also be helpful to help support and protect the knee. We also have a wide range of other professional quality knee braces, supports, wraps, and immobilizers.
Because living with knee arthritis and joint discomfort can interfere with your daily routine, EasierLiving also offers a wide range of top mobility solutions and daily living aids that can help with arthritis. You can easily find the right products for your specific needs including arthritis mobility products and bathing and dressing arthritis products.
