9780070565616: Coping With Arthritis: More Mobility Less Pain
From Publishers Weekly:

The authors of this comprehensive self-help manual are careful not to raise false hopes and are frank about the patience and diligence required to improve an arthritic condition. The authors, physicians who collaborated on Soft Tissue Rheumatic Pain, maintain that most people aggravate arthritis pain by failing to protect joints or to change habitual physical actions that injure and inflame sensitive tissues. Those who suffer from writer's cramp, for example, can use an inexpensive plastic penholder to keep fingers in the proper position, relieving the strain on the hand's muscles and tendons. Tables outline possible causes of specific pains, harmful and helpful behaviors, exercises to safely condition and strengthen injured tissues and to assist in preventing further problems, self-examination techniques, and warning signs that should send people to their physicians for further evaluation. The range of subjects includes sports injuries, all-over pain, soft-tissue rheumatic-pain disorders, work-related injuries and the specific ills of major joints and body parts. Hueter is a medical writer. Illustrations. Prevention Book Club selection.

From Library Journal:

This useful and practical book is the lay version of the authors' text Soft Tissue Rheumatic Pain (Lea & Febiger, 1981). It is a superior self-help book, offering a comprehensive yet understandable approach to the causes, treatment, and prevention of arthritis and related disorders. Sections are arranged by body region and feature case histories, exercise, and advice on seeking professional help. Information is not only medical; the reader will learn preventive physical and psychological techniques. There is a chapter on avoiding specific sports injuries. Included are helpful tables, glossary, and manufacturers' appendix. Recommended for patients, students, and public libraries. Nancy B. Burrell, M.L.S., IBID Inc., Sarasota, Fla.
