Arthritis can be a barrier when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle. It's important to remember when exercising with osteoarthritis that trying new things can be so helpful in continuing to be active. There is so much misinformation about osteoarthritis that can discourage people from being active. Using conservative management consistently is critical. Remember that progress will be slow, and it may take weeks to months to see results.
If you want to be active as you age, you may encounter joint pain and osteoarthritis. Being honest with yourself about how much we are moving is vital because we tend to overestimate how much we move especially if we are dealing with pain. It is so important to know what your options are to be able to maintain an active, adventurous life!
Dr. Alyssa Kuhn is a physical therapist and an osteoarthritis specialist. Alyssa helps people all across the world find pain relief, regain confidence and lead very active lives.
We can not stress enough the importance of being an informed patient. When you go to the doctor's office, they want to help you, but it's to your advantage if you are informed about your health and options. A simple Google search can help you start to better understand your options so you can discuss them with your doctor and figure out the best course of action for yourself. When it comes to your health, you are your biggest advocate.
