If your work involves heavy lifting, you should strongly consider the potential for additional pain and damage stemming from your arthritis. Plan your job around mitigation of your arthritis condition. Always consult with your medical health provider if you are concerned about the potential for workplace injury.
If your work is more sedentary or hands off, focus on creating a friendly work environment for your arthritis condition. Seating, posture, inactivity all play a large roll in your comfort. Incorporate your active life-style into your work environment to prevent sedentary behaviour from taking over.
