I have severe facet joint osteoarthritis and now the darned OA is starting to affect other joints too. I am currently not working but would like to know what sort of work anyone with similar problems has managed to cope with and any adaptations that have helped.

I have had a very wide work experience but still need to work another 12 years until retirement. Is it possible to use a computer at work and not make the damage worse? Any advice welcome as I am finding information on this a little hard to find. Many thanks :)

    Mm, I'm not surprised, Fay22. The trouble is, we're all different and differently affected plus our arthritis progresses at different rates. There's no one-size-fits-all solution.

    I know others have had special chairs/keyboards etc but that, as I recall, was for jobs they were already doing.

    Maybe our helplines could be of use. You can post on their thread, email or PM them. Good luck!
