Take Charge of Your Quality of Life!!!

No one wants to live with pain everyday. Yet, many Arthritis sufferers do just that without the hope of one day being pain free. According to the Arthritis Foundation, 1 in every 5 American adults has being diagnosed with Arthritis and contrary to popular belief it does not only affect the elderly. It is a fact that Arthritis is a painful disease that tears down your joints, bones and other connective tissues but in many cases it does not have to rob you of your quality of life.

So how do you accomplish this?

One way to get your life back is by scheduling an appointment to see a Physical Therapist. Believe it or not, physical therapists are not just useful after a sprained ankle or herniated disc. Rather than relying only on prescription pain medication, people suffering from Osteoarthritis and even Rheumatoid Arthritis can see a physical therapist to treat their pain.

A therapist is able to:
1. Educate you on your condition.
2. Help you manage your pain.
3. Assist you in improving your function.

It is understandable that many Arthritis sufferers would shy away from physical activity. For some, the fear of exercise doing more harm than good could certainly hinder them from keeping active. Here is the good news...exercise does not have to mean more pain. When done properly, remaining active will do just the opposite, it can help you to alleviate or manage your pain.
