According to the Arthritis Foundation, more than 45 million Americans have some form of arthritis. Though this potentially debilitating health condition can affect a person of any age, those over the age of 60 typically feel its effects the most.
The term itself is a bit misleading, as arthritis, in fact comprises a vast range of medical issues that affect the body’s joints. Nevertheless, when most people hear the word, they associate it with the more prevalent subtype osteoarthritis (OA), otherwise referred to as degenerative joint disease.
If your loved one has been diagnosed with arthritis, you have probably witnessed them struggle with simple daily, activities like walking, climbing stairs, and even brushing their teeth. All of these actions require joint movement (at the knees and elbows). Those suffering from advanced stages of the disease tend to require assistance when performing these tasks.
Although there is no cure for arthritis, a number of treatments exist for the affliction. Painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications are typically prescribed to ease the discomfort patients feel, but there are also a number of natural alternatives you can try to promote joint health and slow the progression of arthritis.
Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:
Joint pain is a common symptom of arthritis, a condition which generally begins to develop in older adults. Degenerative changes in the body are often inevitable, however, several precautions can be followed to slow down the process without needing medication in the future.
