Does arthritis affect your everyday tasks?

Arthritis can affect your everyday tasks

The word “arthritis” means joint inflammation. There are more than 100 different forms of arthritis and related conditions that affect joints and the tissues around the joints, such as muscles and tendons. Some types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, can also affect other parts of the body, like the skin or internal organs.

 

If you’ve been diagnosed with arthritis, you are not alone. There are 50 million people in the United States who have arthritis or a related condition, and like you, they face many challenges as a result of the disease. The good news is, there are many ways to meet those challenges and lead a fulfilling life. Physical therapy and exercise incorporated into your daily routine can help.

 

Keep Moving

Despite the pain and stiffness, it’s important to move even if you have Arthritis. If you don’t move and exercise, the muscles surrounding the affected joint will become weaker, smaller and lose their ability to support the joint. This may lead to more joint pain. You may also experience some difficulty in walking, performing certain tasks and maintaining good posture. This is known as limited mobility. Pain at rest may mean that the disease is worsening. This is where Physical Therapy can help. Reddy-Care is staffed with expert therapist that use advanced techniques to help you reduce pain significantly and reach faster results.
