LESS FUNCTION: I'll divide disabilites into 2 categories: joint related and unrelated. Related: less function: depends on hte joints involved. If hands and wrists are arthritic, difficulty with gripping, holding a pen, opening jars. If the knees are involved you may have difficulty getting outa chair and climbing stairs. Joint unrelated: fatigue, anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances.
