A couple of years ago, I was diagnosed with a form of inflammatory arthritis. This shocking day will forever be etched painfully in my memory. Since this time, I’ve experienced more flare ups than I can count. When this happens, my left knee swells up and becomes stiff. During these times, I turn to my ever growing collection of knee braces. Depending on what I need to do, I either choose a full length brace or a shorter one. This form of medical equipment keeps me moving on days when I don’t think I can. Besides braces, some sufferers of inflammatory arthritis rely on canes, crutches, walkers, and other mobility aids. On this blog, you will learn how to survive inflammatory arthritis with the help of medical equipment.
