Arthritis, a condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints, currently affects around 10 million people in the UK. Unfortunately there is currently no known cure for this painful condition.
However, there are a number of treatments that can lessen the symptoms and make it easier to live with.
One way to help reduce arthritic pain is through the use of recliner chairs, which can provide medical benefits by offering support to the joints. Recliner chairs also help by greatly simplifying the movements that cause pain, such as rising from or sitting down in a chair. By rising and tilting forward gently, recliner chairs help one to sit or stand much more easily.
Riser recliner chairs are available with a host of accessories that can relieve pain in other ways. Many modern recliners can be built with massage and heat packages that are especially good at reducing or even completely removing joint pains. And chairs with a high leg lift take your feet six inches above the level of your hips, providing relief to the joints and improving circulation more than other chairs without this feature.
Recliner chairs have the advantage of helping all of your body. Swelling can be reduced in the ankle and feet joints, as well as those in the back, neck, head, hips, and knees. And if you find yourself struggling to get into and up from a standard seat without assistance or find that doing so causes you aggravation or discomfort, a recliner could help restore your independence and make your home more comfortable.
Today, buying a recliner chair is remarkably simple and can be done from the comfort of your own home. Mobility companies know who their customers are and go to great lengths to accommodate them. Many will let you try a chair in your home and take you through all the decisions for your purchase.
Joint pain affects different people in different ways. Some might experience mild stiffness, but others might have severe pain. Lifestyle changes are usually recommended to help arthritis, and a recliner chair is an affordable way to make big differences at home.
