Arthritis is Insidious!

.

I am not a medical expert but I do suffer with arthritis in my hands, wrists and knees. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 27 million American adults have osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is more common in older people. But younger people may get the disease through injury or genetic bone or metabolic defects. Because most osteoarthritis results from wear and tear, the chance of developing the disease increases as people age. Arthritis truly can sneak up on you!

There are so many things we do to protect our joints: we wear good shoes to provide good support for our ankles and knees. We avoid repetitive motion that might stress our joints. We might wear special compression braces for extra protection. We try to relieve carpal tunnel stress at our computers with special wrist support.

There were approximately 256 million units of devices like Apple’s iPad, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and the Kindle Fire to be shipped in 2014. This represents the potential for a lot of pressure/stress on hands. We use all kinds of devices to relieve stress so why not use a unique tablet holder, the Pad Go Round, to prevent undue stress on your hands? Save your precious hands. Be a Pad Go Round owner. Look for them to be available soon.
