Chronic Disease – Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in Australia with 2/5 women and 3/10 men over the age of 80 who suffer from it.
Osteoarthritis often affects the knees and hips, however it can affect any joint. There is no cure for osteoarthritis so it is important to have proper movement and nutrition.
The best way to manage symptoms is through movement. The right movement can decrease pain, maximise the health of cartilage and slow the progression of osteoarthritis. The right nutrition can decrease inflammation and build healthy muscle tissue which supports your movement program. Everything’s Connected Osteopaths will give you a tailored exercise program and recommended dietary enhancements.
