Orthopedics and Joint Health
Almost 15 million US adults live with severe joint pain related to arthritis. Severe joint pain limits a person’s ability to do basic tasks and affects their quality of life. Learning self-management skills and being active can help manage severe joint pain.
Pain. It’s your body’s way of warning you that something might be wrong. But that doesn’t necessarily mean you should avoid exercise. In fact, depending on the type of pain you have, exercise could actually help.
Osteoarthritis treatment plans often include ways to manage pain and improve function. Such plans can include exercise, rest and joint care, pain relief, weight control, medicines, surgery, and non-traditional treatment approaches.
