Arthritis is an inflammatory disease of the joints that affects 50 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Symptoms include stiff joints, pain in movement, loss of flexibility, and some tenderness when pressure is applied to the affected joint. Research shows that arthritis can actually be prevented by regular oral hygiene. There is a link between bacteria that produces an enzyme which leads to an autoimmune attack, and studies show that patients with rheumatoid arthritis have had gum disease at least twice in their lifetime.
When treating arthritis, doctors recommend rest, physical therapy, exercise and medication to relieve pain. Sometimes, when a loved one experiences overwhelming arthritic pain, he needs assistance with daily routines such as brushing his teeth, flossing, walking, and eating. Family members may not always be available, especially if there is only one other family member living with the arthritis patient. That’s where A-1 Home Care comes in.
