Like many of us this holiday season, you’re likely looking for special gifts for your friends and family. However you may be struggling to find the perfect option for your loved one who lives with the joint pain of osteoarthritis. Luckily, we work with these patients every day, and have done a little bit of searching to find some great gift options that will be perfect in more ways than one.

Heated Mattress Cover
Osteoarthritis can cause severe pain throughout the body, so a heated electric mattress pad can be a thoughtful gift to help ease chronic pain. Not to mention, it’s a great option for these colder months. Just be sure to pick one with thick padding, so as not to feel the cords.

Swivel Seat
For those who suffer with osteoarthritis, standing up after sitting for some time, whether a car journey or a long day at work can be a difficult task. This is why a swivel seat can be incredibly useful. Pain in the hips and strain on the neck can be minimised with a swivel seat cushion that turns 360°.

Mineral Bath Salts
Everyone loves a good bath, and the right bath salts can make all the difference. Try something including eucalyptus, or chamomile to help soothe sore muscles and relieve tension.

Hot and Cold Knee Wrap
For those who suffer with osteoarthritis of the knee, a hot and cold knee wrap can make a world of difference. The pack sits over the kneecap, and a velcro strap keeps it in place.

Massage & Acupuncture Gift Voucher
Massage and acupuncture can help relieve arthritis pain, and can be particularly helpful for people with osteoarthritis of the knees or back. A gift voucher for either therapy makes for a special gift, but be sure to get recommendations for practitioners skilled in treating people specifically with osteoarthritis.
