Nonpharmacologic management of Reactive Arthritis

Nonpharmacologic management of Reactive Arthritis

Initial management begins with rest of the affected joints. Transient relief of joint inflammation may be obtained by use of ice packs and/or warm compresses. Once inflammation subsides (1–2 weeks), passive strengthening and range of motion exercises should be initiated. Progression to active exercises reduces the likelihood of muscle atrophy. Avoidance of behavior promoting reinfection is critical.
