This is a great infographic from the Mayo Clinic on the prevalence of Arthritis across the life span and what to do about it! As seen in the info-graphic Arthritis is common in people under the age of 65. As the information suggests maintaining your mobility, strength, balance, and living an active lifestyle are essential components to treating/managing Arthritis. At Thrive we love helping people with Arthritis! Why? It is rewarding! We have developed methods of treating Arthritis that are highly effective at getting people back to the activities they love and thriving in life. Here is a link to a one of our recent blogs discussing some of what we have found effective. Also we find that our patients arrive at physical therapy with little hope of improving their condition as they are frequently told by medical professionals (to be fair not all believe this to be the case) that nothing can be done. In actuality, their is much that can be done to improve when you are suffering from Arthritis!
If you are experiencing pain, injury, or weakness why suffer any longer? Take action to address it now!
