In the state of Louisiana, 1 in 3 people suffer from arthritis. This alarming statistic has motivated the agents at Cunningham Financial Group to take action and encourage Louisianans to get the help they need. Treatment is available in many forms, and having the right health insurance can lift the burden of costly medical expenses as well.
The condition of arthritis can take on many different forms in people of all ages. It has been said there are 100 forms of arthritis, but the major three include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and juvenile arthritis. Becoming educated on this complex disorder is important to the health and well being of the community. Cunningham Financial Group is working to educate their customers and others about the effects of arthritis and how to treat it. Here are some tips provided by the agency:
- Inflammation in the joints could result from a broken bone, constant rubbing of joints, or from an infection.
- Patient education can help eliminate barriers to pain relief.
- Sitting properly and avoiding slouching can help prevent arthritis pain.
- Getting regular exercise can strengthen joint support throughout the body.
- Placing a warm compress on the arthritis pain can help increase blood flow and decrease inflammation.
- Managing stress can help lower pain along with the right medication prescribed by a doctor.
- Physical therapists can assist in finding ways to control pain for arthritis sufferers.
- If a person has severe arthritis, he/she may need joint replacement performed by an orthopedic surgeon.
The reason Cunningham Financial Group supports the education of arthritis is because it can significantly reduce the pain experienced and result in fewer swollen joints for those diagnosed. A community that knows what risks to look out for and is prepared for those potential risks is better off in the future. In addition to following these tips, the agents want to provide more comfort and help by offering their reliable health insurance to Louisianans.
