Is Your Kitchen Arthritis-Friendly?
Kitchen chores can be unkind to sore joints, but resourcefulness and the right gadgets can make your daily tasks easier.
Like most people, you probably spend hours each day in your kitchen, so why not make that time pain-free? You’ll enjoy food preparation more—and dislike cleaning up less—when tasks become less burdensome. "If you suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, an arthritis-unfriendly kitchen can prevent you from doing the things you need to do," says Matthew Bunyard, M.D., director of clinic operations in the department of rheumatic and immunologic diseases at Cleveland Clinic.
