Is Your Job Hurting Your Joints? New York, NY

Do you have a job that requires you to make the same motions day after day, year after year? If so, you are at risk for arthritis. Since arthritis is a condition of the joints and it is the leading cause of joint replacement, it is vitally important that you never ignore its symptoms. Some jobs are worse than others when it comes to your joint health. This list covers a wide spectrum of industries, but they can all involve repetitive movements that lead to an increased risk for joint pain:

  • Construction Workers
  • Musicians
  • Teachers
  • Lumber Workers
  • Professional Athletes
  • Dancers
  • Textile Workers
  • Truck Drivers
  • Health Care Workers

Ignoring the warning signs of arthritis will cause the disease to worsen or progress. Eventually, you may be faced with joint replacement surgery. It is important to know that arthritis is a condition that is not restricted to seniors. Young adults, teens and even children can suffer from poor joint health or arthritis. If you notice chronic stiffness, pain or swelling/inflammation in your joints on a day-to-day basis, your job may be the culprit. Since not all of us are able to switch jobs or suddenly change our career path, you may need to consider ways you can manage and treat your condition.
