Arthritis is one of the most common disabilities in the world and has been said to effect as many as 30% of the population by the time they reach the age of 65. This painful inflammation of the joints can be traced to a wide range of causes, but regardless of what the cause may be the outcome is always the same. Canadian Disability Benefits can help you apply for the benefits you deserve and require to get the medical treatment you deserve.
What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is a painful inflammation of a person’s joints which may affect any of the major or minor joints within the body. While primarily a disease of the elderly, more than 100 different varieties of arthritis have been identified and may affect anyone at any time in their life. The most common among these are osteoarthritis, which is caused by a combination of age and general wear on the body’s joints and rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the joints. Over time, the inflammation and damage caused by this disease can make even the most basic of movements impossibly painful. Canadian Disability Benefits provided by the government can help you receive the treatment you require without adding undue financial hardship to your already challenging life.
Symptoms of Arthritis
As most people know, the most significant symptoms of arthritis in all of its forms involve swelling, pain and/or stiffness of the joints to one degree or another. Over time this pain can become so severe that it can drastically reduce a person’s ability to perform even the simplest of daily activities. In addition to the pain caused by the disease itself, that pain can in turn cause even more severe effects down the road as a person’s physical health suffers from reduced exercise.
