Arthritis Recognized As Major Cause Of Disability Among US Adults
CDC report states millions of Americans are suffering physical disabilities due to arthritis
According to the study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rheumatism or arthritis has continually been the most common cause of disability in the United States. It has been reported that 16 million Americans have doctor-diagnosed arthritis.
Adults who suffer from disability due to arthritis often face limitations such as difficulty in walking or performing other common daily tasks. They found that 1 out of 10 Americans have trouble walking certain distances such as from the parking lot to the mall. Studies found that 7.8 million adults have difficulties bending or kneeling, while 4.8 million adults have trouble in climbing stairs.
The sufferers of arthritis that reported their disability also found it difficult or impossible to grasp small objects, carry 10 pounds, push a heavy object, reach above one's head or stand continuously for more than 2 hours.
The Arthritis Foundation reported that about 41 percent of people with arthritis suffer from limitations in certain activities because of their joint symptoms. Aside from the physical limitations, patients also suffer from symptoms such as stiffness, pain, and swelling.
The increase in the prevalence of arthritis can lead to the escalating number of people who will also suffer from physical and mobility disability. What is even more alarming is that it is bound to increase especially among the growing elderly population.
"It is imperative that patients make an effort to learn about their arthritic condition and take part in their own care. There have been studies that showed patients who make an effort to address their medical problem report less pain and enjoy a better quality of life." said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Experts suggest that sufferers of arthritis can possibly reduce their chance of suffering from disabilities if they enhance their self-management skills. This can be done by practicing a healthy lifestyle and having great nighttime sleep.
Another more natural way for sufferers to increase their chance in recovering from joint pain and avoiding disability is to consider using glucosamine supplements. Consumers of the VitaBreeze Glucosamine Supplement reported significant joint pain relief and described major improvements in their condition after using the supplement. The VitaBreeze supplement is available exclusively on Amazon.com - http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Chondroitin-Supplement-Turmeric/dp/B00DUMO9X4.
