Pick Up Sticks

Many people suffering from arthritis are severely restricted in their mobility. A task such as bending down to pick something up off the ground may be a very painful, take a lot longer, or simply be impossible.

There are many aids available to help people in this situation with everyday tasks. One such device is a pick up stick. These are great for people who have trouble bending, reaching and grasping. They can make life a lot easier.

However, things must be pretty extreme if you are in need of a pick up stick. They should not be used just so you can be lazy and not have to bend. Remember as a general rule, exercise is good and you should be doing your daily tasks as normally as possible.

Speak to an Occupational Therapist in your area for more information on pick up sticks.
