How Riser Recliners Help Arthritis Symptoms

10 million people in the UK suffer from arthritis symptoms, meaning it impacts around 15% of the population. Arthritis causes mobility issues, making it harder for people with the condition to move without pain or stiffness. The disease worsens with age, making life uncomfortable for long-term sufferers. 

Fortunately, Grosvenor Mobility’s riser recliner chairs can provide relief for arthritis symptoms. 

Types of Arthritis 

There are several kinds of arthritis, the two main types being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

Osteoarthritis impacts joints, making them stiff or even painful to move. This type of arthritis is referred to as ‘wear and tear’ arthritis because it impacts body parts we move constantly, such as our hands, knees and hips. 

Rheumatoid arthritis causes swelling in joints, fatigue and even leads to fevers and loss of appetite. This type of arthritis occurs when the immune system targets joints, which leads to swelling. 

Other common types of arthritis include gout, psoriatic arthritis and juvenile arthritis. 

Arthritis Symptoms

Initial symptoms to look out for are pain, stiffness or swelling in joints. Arthritis impacts movement, restricting how well our joints function. 

There are many different types of arthritis, so it’s important to note your symptoms to get an accurate diagnosis of what your type might be. If you suffer from the following, speak to a doctor:

  • Pain and stiffness in joints
  • Restricted movement in joints
  • Weakness and fatigue during or after moving
  • Inflammation in and around joints
  • Red skin around joints

The supportive nature of recliner chairs allows them to relieve symptoms of arthritis. If used regularly, they bring comfort to the lives of those who have arthritis. 

Riser Recliner Chairs for Arthritis Symptoms

Riser recliner chairs are tailor-made, supportive armchairs that provide relief for people with mobility issues

The easy-to-use features of these chairs allow users to find the perfect position for them to get comfortable in. For arthritis sufferers, a riser recliner chair should provide the support they need. 

Improved Comfort at Home

One of the many benefits of riser recliner chairs is the superior comfort they provide. Arthritis sufferers will experience stiffness, pain and discomfort as they move throughout the day. Riser recliner chairs allow you to relax in absolute comfort, adjusting positions to find that sweet spot.

Chairs such as the Grosvenor Deluxe or the Marylebone are great options to consider if comfort is a priority. The added cushioning in these chairs will provide extra support and comfort. 

Aid Sitting Down and Standing Up

Sitting for an extended period with arthritis can lead to more pain, meaning being able to stand up and sit down easily is important. 

With rise and recliner chairs, the raising and lowering features make these movements easy! By raising the chair when sitting, users will be supported as they stand up. The same goes for the other way, making it easy for users to sit down gently. 

Due to stiffness in the knees and hips, these movements can be challenging for arthritis sufferers otherwise. As such, many benefit from increased independence when using a riser recliner. 

Relieving Pain Associated With Arthritis Symptoms

Arthritis sufferers need proper support from their furniture. Luckily, our riser recliner products are suited to your needs. They provide fantastic support and distribute weight evenly. Pressure on your joints is alleviated when sitting in a reclined position, meaning arthritis symptoms are reduced. 

Improved Posture

Maintaining good posture helps to relieve arthritis by improving the alignment of the bones and joints. It’s easy to slump down when relaxing in a chair, but the support provided by riser recliner chairs works to improve posture.  

The lumbar support within the chairs will aid with proper spinal alignment, reducing pressure on the spine as well as leading to better overall posture. This improved posture helps soothe arthritis symptoms. 

Heat and Massage Relief

Grosvenor Mobility’s recliner chairs come with some great optional extras, one of them being a heat and massage feature! 

Heat therapy is great for relieving muscle and joint pain, in addition to the added massage which relaxes any knots or aches. This option is great for when you are suffering from stiffness, aches and pains. Furthermore, the heat also warms and eases joints before activity, making it a great option to use before getting up and moving. 

Improved Circulation 

Elevating your legs with a riser recliner chair or other mobility furniture can improve your circulation. This is a great benefit for arthritis sufferers, particularly those with rheumatoid arthritis, as this type causes inflammation of blood cells. 

By improving circulation, you can lessen the effects of rheumatoid arthritis, providing relief for symptoms.
