Chronic Degenerative Joint Disease? We Can Help You Become More Active

Degenerative joint disease is incredibly common in the United States. According to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, more than half of American adults over the age of 65 are suffering from some degree of degenerative joint disease. With that said, degenerative joint disease can impact anyone at any age. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) predict that incidences of arthritis will continue to climb as the population continues to grow and age in the next few decades.

Joint problems can be a pain, but they don’t have to put an end to your physical activity. A healthy and active lifestyle is especially important as we age. Limited mobility can increase the risk of many secondary health issues like weight gain/obesity, high blood pressure, and a number of other potentially serious health problems. If the pain and stiffness of degenerative joint disease is interfering with your physical activity, we can help.

At Revive Medical Rehab, Dr. Gabriel Boze and our team offer physical therapy, chiropractic care, regenerative medicine, and a range of therapeutic services from our office in Spring Hill, Florida.

How to keep moving

The symptoms of degenerative joint disease can vary but usually include pain, limited range of motion, weakness, and limited flexibility. It can be difficult or close to impossible for many people to engage in even moderate physical activity. Depending on the location and severity of your pain and mobility issues, we offer a range of services designed to offer relief from painful and damaged joints. Here are a few of our services: 

There is no one size fits all solution to joint pain, and in many cases, Dr. Boze will recommend a combination of treatments depending on your condition to find the best treatment to get you back on your feet. Even if you suffer from moderate to extreme joint pain, avoiding physical activity will actually make the problem worse over time.

There's nothing wrong with modifying your physical routine, just make sure you're not avoiding movement. That will lead to weaker joints and muscles, increasing your risk of pain and mobility issues in the future.
