Occupational Therapy for Activities of Daily Living

Occupational therapy is a type of rehabilitation that uses daily activities to help people of all ages live more independent and productive lives after a medical emergency. As we age, we’re more likely to have an illness, memory loss or injury. That’s why over one-third of occupational therapists work with older adults. In fact, occupational therapists are often advocates for the elderly, working with local community groups and governments to ensure each is doing their part to allow seniors to maintain as much independence as possible.

Recovering Successfully from Hip Replacement Surgery

Recovering Successfully from Hip Replacement Surgery

Getting older often comes with occasional aches or pains. However, nearly 50% of all seniors report suffering from chronic pain — pain that is persistent, lasts for an extended period of time, makes it difficult to perform daily activities, and doesn’t respond to common anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Many of these instances of chronic pain are often found in the hip, resulting in stiffness, difficulty using stairs, trouble bending down and pain when walking. It’s no wonder then that hip replacement surgery is one of the most common elective surgeries in the United States, performed on more than 300,000 patients each year.

Top Tips for Healthy Joints

Top Tips for Healthy Joints

Being able to move with ease and do the things we enjoy is something many of us take for granted. It’s only after we experience mobility issues due to joint pain, arthritis or stiffness that we realize what we’ve lost. But it’s possible to have healthy joints well into your later years if you start taking care of them now.
Cartilage and synovial fluid are found within the joints of our knees, elbows, shoulders, hips and more; they help protect joints and keep bones from rubbing together. But as we age, it’s not uncommon to experience wear and tear or injuries to the cartilage, which can ultimately lead to damaged joints, arthritis and pain.

Blue And Cold Fingers: Could It Be Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Blue And Cold Fingers: Could It Be Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Do your fingers feel very cold and turn blue when exposed to a drop in temperature? You may be experiencing symptoms of Reynaud’s (pronounced: ray-NOSE) disease, a condition affecting small arteries supplying blood to your skin. People with Reynaud’s react strongly to the cold; their arteries shrink and become narrower, limiting blood flow, and causing their skin to whiten or become blue from lack of blood. Even holding a glass of iced drink can cause this effect. Reynaud’s can occur on its own, for no reason. It can also arise from an underlying cause, such as an injury, certain medications, or a condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
