Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints and currently affects around 10 million people in the UK. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for this painful ailment, but there are a number of treatments that can lessen the symptoms and make arthritis easier to live with.
One way to help reduce arthritic pain is with a rise and recline chair, which can provide medical benefits by offering support to the joints. Rise and recline chairs also help by greatly simplifying the movements that cause pain, such as rising from or sitting down in a chair. By lifting and tilting forward gently, rise and recline chairs help one to sit or stand much more easily.
Rise and recline chairs are available with a host of accessories that can relieve pain in other ways too. At Oak Tree Mobility, our range of chairs can be built with massage and heat packages that are especially good at reducing or even completely removing joint pains. And our unique high leg lift raises your feet six inches above the level of your hips, providing relief to the joints and improving circulation by getting the blood flowing.
Rise and recline 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, an Oak Tree rise and recline chair could help restore your independence and make your home much more comfortable.
Buying a rise and recline chair is remarkably simple. At Oak Tree, we believe in exceptional customer care and will even visit you in your home to speak to you about exactly what you want from your chair. One of our friendly advisors will be able to advise you on the best options and explain how an Oak Tree chair can help you find the comfort you are looking for.
Joint pain affects different people in different ways. Some experience only mild stiffness, but others might have severe pain. Lifestyle changes are usually recommended to help arthritis, and a rise and recline chair is an affordable way to make a big difference at home.
