Take Care of Your Bones and Joints

Each year in October the Bone and Joint Action week occurs. The week helps draw attention to disorders such as arthritis, back pain, trauma, pediatric conditions and osteoporosis. In America over half of all those over the age of 18 are affected by a bone or joint condition. The number of those individuals suffering with a musculoskeletal condition and requiring medical care continues to increase. Thus making bone and joint conditions the most common cause of severe long term pain and physical disabilities.

Back pain, arthritis, traumatic injuries, osteoporosis, spinal deformity and childhood conditions are all considered musculoskeletal conditions. Unless new treatments and preventive measures are found the number of cases are predicted to increase greatly. Sadly these conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system in our bodies often lead to significant disabilities as well as poorer quality of life. However, there does not look as a lot of research will be increasing as the National Institute of Health only allows a small percent of the annual budget to the researchers that look into improving the health of those that suffer. 

October 19, 2020 an awareness of pediatric is brought into the picture. The leading cause of death in those under 18 around the world are due to accidents. More than 20,000 deaths in the United States each year in children and teens are due to accidents. Many of these , nearly 3/4 are due to injuries that were the unintentional. These unintentional injuries may be the result of falls, car wrecks, bicycle accidents, and the list goes on. However, these accidents can be prevented with some safety steps.
