Tips, Tools, Technology and RA

Tips, Tools, Technology and your RA is our focus this month.


Many times we talk about tips we use to manage our RA pain, or tips while driving. Do you want to share any tips for pain, stiffness, flares or symptoms associated with your RA?


Do you use assistive devices, or a smartphone app when visiting the doctor? Tools can be vital to some of us while live with RA. Share with us some tools you use that helps you manage your RA.


While technology may be a tool as well, we want you to share some technology that may be helpful to you when you are experiencing pain or stiffness. A smartphone can sometimes be difficult to hold because our hands hurt, what technology is helpful to you when it comes to smartphones?

Here are some ways you can participates in this month's spotlight:
