Pushing Through

Rheumatoid Arthritis, along with many other forms of arthritis, causes a lot of pain and is very debilitating. There are more consequences to it then meet the eye, but those are usually discovered after the fact, or in this case; when the flare-ups have finally disappeared.

One of the things I experienced after a flare-up was the muscle weakness. My strength diminished slowly, but surely and each time I had lost a little bit more of my mobility. I put a stop to the negative effects by pushing through the pain of the arthritis attacks and forcing myself to stay active.

Another good and very helpful option is to exercise. There are exercises specifically designed for arthritis sufferers which don't put any strain on the joints, but still keep them limber and strengthen the muscles. It would be wise looking in to physical therapy de or to ask your physician about it.

Staying active does not just limit itself to people with arthritis; accidents happen all the time. Most accidents occur at home or at work and it may well be that work injuries or other incidents call for physical therapy to either speed up the healing process, or to ensure regaining and/or keeping full physical capability.

Even though those exercises may be painful, my advice is; do them. You will reap the benefits of your hard labor after the healing and you will be glad you pushed through!
