Philip Conaghan, a consultant rheumatologist, professor of musculoskeletal medicine at the University of Leeds, and spokesman for Arthritis Research UK, recommends our IMAK Stress Ball in the Daily Mail!
This is what he says:
"HOW IT WORKS: I see countless patients who can’t open a jam jar or do up buttons because they’ve stopped using their hands due to the pain, which causes muscles to degenerate. Squeezing a sponge ball or rolled-up socks strengthens the forearms, hands, wrists and fingers, and keeps the joints working – sit with your hands in your lap and give the ball a long, sustained squeeze for 30 seconds till your arm starts to get sore. Release, switch sides and repeat for 30 minutes while watching TV.
DOWNSIDES: It may be painful to start with, but exercise is a crucial part of managing arthritis."
The IMAK StressBall is also great for managing and healing scar tissue in your hands.
