Joint pain is one of the most common forms of pain for aging adults. As you age, the fluid that lubricates your joints decreases and the cartilage that lines your joints becomes thinner. This causes your joints to become stiff, less flexible, and painful to move. Daily activities such as walking, sitting, and, getting out of bed can become more challenging. Poor joint health can significantly impact your ability to move and enjoy your life.
If you are experiencing joint pain and stiffness, talk with your doctor about physical and occupational therapy treatment options. Physical and occupational therapy can help you manage your pain so you can enjoy a more active, pain-free life.
