Top psoriatic arthritis tips

You may have some clever life hacks that you use to help get around your PsA (psoriatic arthritis) symptoms, but there are a few others to help you make little wins every day.*

•    Hang wrinkled clothes in the bathroom and let the steam do your ironing
•    Buy pre-chopped, frozen veggies to give your hands a break
•    Have a warm shower to warm up your joints before exercise
•    Use a backpack instead of a shoulder bag to spread the load
•    Make a slit in a tennis ball and slide your toothbrush into it for a handle that’s easier to grip
•    When your hands let you down, try opening the fridge with a scarf or ribbon
•    Build muscle to take the pressure off your joints
•    Consider adding a cover or pad to the steering wheel of your car to make long car trips more comfortable
