Did you know that evidence shows that dinosaurs had arthritis in their ankles? It’s been noted in humans as far back as 4500 B.C.
Today raises awareness about the many forms of arthritis, inflammation of the joints, that afflict people. The majority afflicted are elderly people over the age of 65 but it also affects 30% of those under 65, including teenagers.
We have made great strides in understanding and caring for those stricken with the disease but there is more work to be done.
We at Private Home Health Care understand how joint pain can cause mobility issues. We strongly advocate early detection and exercising and physical therapy to keep joints loose and decrease inflammation. Walking and a healthy diet are good ways to help yourself.
