Joint Problems

Help with joint pain in later life.

Joint problems are common in elderly people. Joints are designed to let your body move and support your weight as you go through life. As you get older, wear and tear on the joints can cause pain stiffness and swelling.

There are several causes of joint pain. Some common conditions associated with joint pain are arthritis, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, and an auto-immune reaction.

Joint pain affects mobility. Reduced mobility commonly results in the reduction in community activities which can result in isolation.

If you are worried about joint pain, make an appointment with our consultants.
