What Is Arthritis? The Answer Might Surprise You!
I cannot tell you how many times I have patients tell me that they have pain that is because of arthritis! What if I told you that arthritis, by itself, does not cause pain? (I need to clarify something, when I say arthritis I am talking about degenerative joint disease, and not about the rheumatoid or psoriatic variety) The altered movement that occurs as a result of arthritis is what contributes to the onset of pain. Arthritis will happen to ALL of us eventually, but the impact that it has on you is what matters!
Here is a clip from a recent talk that I did at the Eldersburg Library and discussed exactly what arthritis is!
