Alleviating Rheumatoid Arthritis

The U.S. National Library of Medicine offers this list of possible treatments for rheumatoid arthritis:

* Range-of-motion exercises and other exercise routines devised by a physical therapist can help prevent or delay joint damage.
* Splints, braces and other supportive devices can help protect the joints.
* Heat or cold treatments can help ease pain and inflammation.
* Working with a physical therapist can help you learn how to protect your joints during daily activities and tasks, and how to use your joints when your arthritis is causing pain.
* Getting at least eight hours sleep at night and taking frequent rests during strenuous activities are recommended to ease joint stress.
