Who’s at Risk for Developing Arthritis?

We’d all like to avoid the development of arthritis, if possible. But when you think that over 54 million Americans have some form of arthritis, that could be easier said than done.

At TruWell Health, all we do is help our patients through the pain of their arthritis. We often have patients ask if there was something they could have done to prevent their arthritis. We usually say, “A qualified maybe.” That’s particularly true with osteoarthritis, “wear and tear arthritis” because it is basically due to the degradation of the joints over our lifetime. Sitting in a chair and not playing sports or participating in other activities may have saved your joints a little damage, but it probably didn’t do your overall health any favors.

Still, there are various risk factors for developing arthritis. Let’s get into those in this blog.

Risk factors

At TruWell Health in St. Pete, Dr Lora Brown is a pioneer in the field of interventional pain medicine. Her treatments aim to control your pain, minimize your joint damage, and improve your quality of life.

If you’re dealing with chronic pain from arthritis, please give Dr. Brown a call at TruWell Health, (727) 440-5410, and let’s see how we can help.
