Are You Suffering From Arthritis?

Arthritis is often referred to as a single disease. In fact, it is an umbrella term for more than 100 medical conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, specifically joints where two or more bones meet.

Arthritis-related problems include pain, stiffness, inflammation and damage to joint cartilage (the tissue that covers the ends of bones, enabling them to move against each another) and surrounding structures. This can result in joint weakness, instability and deformities that can interfere with the most basic daily tasks such as walking, driving a car and preparing food.

Arthritis is the major cause of disability and chronic pain in Australia, with 3.85million Australians affected at a cost to our economy of more than $23.9 billion each year in medical care and indirect costs such as loss of earnings and lost production.

Luckily, Optimum Health Solutions has a very detailed Arthritis Program that can help you to overcome your arthritis, and even manage its symptoms.

The Optimum Arthritis Program Addresses 3 Main Areas:

  • To increase the range of motion around the affected joints: Increasing range of motion takes pressure off the joint and tendons within the joint. Maintaining flexibility will ensure that the joint remains supple and full range of motion is achieved, helping relieve the arthritic symptoms.
  • To increase strength in the muscles surrounding the joints: Having adequate strength is important in ensuring the muscles take the strain, without placing excessive pressure on joints.
  • Addressing your dietary requirements and remove arthritis-causing foods: research shows that some foods cause arthritis and make its symptoms worse. Our Arthritis Program enables you to consult with our Dietitian, to address your dietary requirements.
