Joint protection aims to reduce pain and local inflammation, preserve the integrity of joint structures and improve function. There is evidence that it can improve pain and function in the short term, but the long-term effects are uncertain. This study evaluated the effects of joint protection in early rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
