Rumatiek

Beskerm jou gewrigte so

1

Rumatiek

Beskerm jou gewrigte so:

  1. Jy kan steeds oefening doen as jy rumatiek het. Warm kompresse aan die begin en koue kompresse aan die einde op pynlike gewrigte help baie.
  2. Oefening soos swem, t’ai chi, joga en selfs baldanse is geskik as jy aan rumatiek ly. Oefen minstens elke tweede dag om jou gewrigte soepel te hou.
  3. Kry hulpmiddels wat die druk op jou gewrigte verlig, soos gewrigspalke of ’n kierie.

Bonuswenke

  • Chirurgie kan soms ‘n rumatieklyer se lewe dramaties verbeter. Mense dink dat ’n heup- of knievervanging ’n enorme operasie behels, maar dié prosedures is tans hoogs gesofistikeerd en baie suksesvol.
  • Ly jy aan rumatiek? Verlig die druk op jou gewrigte deur gewig af te skud.
