Patients with rheumatic diseases involving the joints experience pain, decreased range of motion in affected joints, and deterioration in functional activities. Individuals with arthritis require a comprehensive management strategy including pharmacological and nonpharmacological treatment options. Patient education and self-management protocols such as joint protection techniques are essential in the management of arthritis. The present topical review focused on joint protection, its implications on patients' daily living, and the potential effects among patients with arthritis. Implementing joint protection principles, such as avoiding repetitive movements, prolonged grips, and positions of deformity, is of great importance to provide a better outcome in patients with arthritis.
