When you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), any joint can become stiff and painful. That joint stiffness can sometimes make driving difficult. For instance, it’s hard to turn the steering wheel when your hands and wrists hurt or to apply pressure to the gas and brakes when your feet hurt. If your neck and shoulders are stiff, it can be difficult to turn your head to look for passing cars. RA can also make it hard to get in and out of the car. These driving tips will help you get where you’re going safely and comfortably.
