10 Ways to Deal With Arthritis in Your Daily Routine

7. Firm up your seat: That big, cushy recliner might look inviting, but it may do more harm than good. A chair that is too soft aggravates symptoms in your back, for example. And when you sink into a chair, it’s harder to get back up. Shop for a firm chair that’s high enough for you to get in and out easily. Powered chairs can give you a boost back up, if needed.
8. Add doorknob handles: If turning traditional, rounded doorknobs is a strain, consider getting adapters. These fit over doorknobs and include a lever mechanism that requires only a push rather than a turn.
