What can you do to prevent it and improve your self-care?

There is no cure for arthritis and the emphasis therefore lies on trying to prevent it from occurring in the first place.

The main ways of doing this are by:

  • maintaining a healthy weight (to reduce pressure on your joints)
  • avoiding smoking
  • taking precautions to avoid injury (i.e. wearing the right protective equipment while playing sports)
