If you feel pain and stiffness in your body or have trouble moving around, you may have arthritis. If you have been diagnosed with arthritis you are not alone. Arthritis is known as one of the top causes of pain and disability in America.
Most kinds of arthritis cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in your joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, a swollen joint can become severely damaged.
Exercise is typically recommended for self-management, but when symptoms flare, the pain may deter affected people from moving around. Heat, cold, massage, and prescribed or over the counter medications may help with the recommendation from your doctor.
If symptoms from arthritis pain are affecting your quality of life, increasing your risk for falls, and/or overall well-being please see your doctor.
