September is Arthritis Awareness Month, a month to draw awareness to the millions that are affected by this disease. This inflammatory condition can cause longterm damage to the joints in the body and ongoing pain, swelling, and stiffness. As such a common ailment, most people know someone with Arthritis and can see the toll it can take on a person.
According to the Arthritis Society, by 2035, nearly 40% more people will have arthritis than today – that’s 8.5 million Canadians. The good news is that there are so many support groups, resources, and meetings that you can call on for help. At Charlton, we specialize in treatment for Arthritis and are happy to discuss your options at any time.
