People with RA reported using three or four self-management methods simultaneously to help control symptoms. In the main, believing a method to be beneficial was strongly related to its use. However, exercise and joint protection, whilst widely believed to be beneficial, were less used. People reported problems with knowing how to do these correctly, having insufficient time to practise sufficiently and difficulty in establishing habits.
