Arthritis Health Program for Senior Citizens

Silver Inning Foundation in association with Cosmopolitan School has organised J & J Arthritis Health Program for Senior Citizens at Mira Road near Mumbai.

Arthritis is on the rise in India. An estimated 150 million people in the country suffer from arthritis of which one in ten people over the age of 50 suffer from knee & hip arthritis. In addition osteoporosis-affecting women in India is assuming epidemic proportions.

The symptoms of arthritis are severe and persistent pain or swelling in the joint that increases with age. Individuals experience difficulty in walking, climbing stairs, squatting on the floor and performing any normal activity. This condition, if neglected could even lead to crippling of the legs.

While the disease is common, awareness of arthritis and its treatment options is still very low. As a result those afflicted continue to suffer pain and immobility leading to a compromised quality of life. It is with this in mind that we wish to conduct forums on Arthritis & Its Management for senior citizens and any others possibly suffering from this disease.

Date: Sunday 29th November 2009

Time: 9.00 am to 12.00 noon

Venue: Cosmopolitan School , Sheetal Nagar , Near Ganesh Temple ,Mira Road .

The suggested flow of the event is as follows:

· Presentation by orthopedic doctor/ panel on Arthritis & Its Management

· Exercise demos by physiotherapist/ doctor

· Q&A session between audience & speakers

· Health Checkup

Correctly stated the symptoms...once the symptoms are known immediate action should be taken to prevent the very painful disease.

Pain management said...

In a recent survey on pain conducted by the Stanford University Medical Center, arthritis pain was cited as the chief complaint among America’s seniors, with thirty-two percent of the senior population listing arthritis as the specific cause of their suffering. Arthritis does strike children and young adults as well, although it afflicts the mature segment of the population more frequently. It is estimated that 15% of the American adult population suffer from arthritis, and this number is rising, increasing the demand for arthritis pain relief.
