If you suffer from arthritic joint pain, you aren't alone. More than 50 million Americans have arthritis, according to the Arthritis Foundation. That's 1 in 5 adults and 300,000 children that are living with this condition. Other estimates put the figure at 1 in 3 adults. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis being the most common.
At TruWell Health, our experienced Medical Advisory Board provides effective, non-surgical arthritis relief so you can live a fuller, pain-free life. Arthritis makes it difficult to be productive and active, which affects your mental and physical health, as well as your livelihood. Contact us today to arrange your initial consultation in St. Petersburg, Florida, so you can find out what your treatment options are.
The symptoms of arthritis make it difficult to perform everyday tasks and tend to diminish your quality of life:
- Limited range of motion
These symptoms may affect the knees, hips, shoulders and fingers. Symptoms range in severity, and may come and go over time. Arthritic pain and stiffness make it difficult to walk up a flight of stairs, difficult to use your hands and generally impede your ability to live life fully. A family history of arthritis may place you at an increased risk for developing the condition, but there are also risk factors which you may be able to control to a degree.
Risk factors include:
- Accumulated wear and tear on the joints
- Being older
- History of physical injury
- Certain genetic and metabolic diseases
Arthritis affects women nearly three times as often as men, but it afflicts people of all genders, ethnicities, ages and health histories. If you have painful, stiff, swollen joints, don't ignore the symptoms. Treatment can slow or stop this health condition.
