    Tips for Preventing Arthritis in the Hands (Part 2)

    There is no known cure for arthritis. In fact, most treatments for arthritis are aimed at early recognition and prevention.

    1. Maintain a healthy weight. This can help to fight off OA.
    2. Don’t smoke, or quit smoking. This may reduce your chance of developing RA.
    3. Try to avoid injury when playing sports or participating in recreational activities.
