What Is Osteoarthritis
Arthritis is essentially a disease marked by the damage and eventual deterioration of the joints. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. This disease, most common among the elderly, is often misunderstood as simply being the result of aging. In reality, it is caused by a combination of genetics, diet, exercise, and various other lifestyle habits which determine the health of our bodies. At the Osteo Relief Institute, we study osteoarthritis to help the world better understand this disease.
Our Advice On Management
One of the most important ways we help our patients at the Osteo Relief Institute is to help them understand what they need to do to manage their disease (You’reBeautyCraze). The best way to manage osteoarthritis is to stay active and keep on your feet. When people avoid exercising, they naturally devolve the quality of their joints. Beyond exercise, it is highly important to maintain a healthy diet as well. Your diet is going to play an important role in how your arthritis progresses by controlling the amount of calcium you take in and your ability to absorb it.
What Is The Long-Term Outcome?
Unfortunately, osteoarthritis is not a curable disease and eventually, all patients will end up with a significant amount of dysfunction. The Osteo Relief Institute understands this and tries to help patients cope with the inevitable losses they will experience. What you can do is reduce the severity experienced over time and delay the end result of osteoarthritis. Most patients will generally develop osteoarthritis some time in their middle age and gradually experience a loss of function over years. By the time patients are in their 70s, they will need significant help with daily walking and lifting among other things. At this point, the Osteo Relief Institute recommends family intervene to help the patient.
Our Vision At The Osteo Relief Institute
The Osteo Relief Institute is determined to do just about everything necessary to make sure people are able to properly handle osteoarthritis no matter where their outcomes take them. This includes advice on management of the disease and efforts to give people a better way to handle the disease overall.
