Arthritis doesn’t have to leave you stuck at home. You can still travel, still live a full life, even if your joints might make it a bit more challenging than it once used to be. As summer rolls up upon us, now that the holidays have retreated for another year, many of us think of fun in the sun and hitting the road to see some sights. While it can be fun and exciting, it can also be a little stressful too, and when you have arthritis you might be worried striking out on an adventure could be a bit of a problem. Don’t sweat it; just plan ahead and enjoy your trip.
It starts with basic precautions that you are probably already aware of and implementing in your regular daily routines. It might be a walking aid like a cane, but when you’re away from home for travel it perhaps could lead to renting a wheelchair or scooter being a useful idea. When it comes to travel, that sometimes means waiting in lines, and the ability to sit could ease your condition while you’re working through a check in at the airport. If you have identification or registrations that indicate your mobility restrictions, bringing them to show to travel personnel might be helpful so they can know how to best assist you.
Don’t let joint pain pin you down at home. Get out and see the world. Make plans and have fun. #HealthStatus
