Arthritis in Women

Arthritis is a condition that causes painful inflammation in the body. Symptoms of arthritis are:

  • Joint pain

  • Stiffness

  • Swelling

  • Redness

  • Warmth

  • Decreased range of motion in the affected area

The two most common types of arthritis are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Each of these types of arthritis differs a great deal, Osteoarthritis affecting your bone joints and Rheumatoid arthritis an autoimmune disorder that can cause pain in some body organs over time.

While arthritis pain can be scary and debilitating, there are many medications that can help deal with both types of arthritis. Whether you want to discuss prescription or OTC options, your Jeffery’s Drug Store pharmacist can advise you on which treatments are the best solution for you and your arthritis symptoms. Don’t let arthritis stop the woman you love from enjoying life. Book an Arthritis & Me Consultation today for arthritis relief!

Improving Women’s Bone Health

Calcium and vitamin D are among the supplements women can take to help keep their bones strong. As women age, the calcium levels in their bones begin to diminish. In addition, during menopause, women can experience rapid bone loss due to hormonal changes. You can help the strong women in your life stay strong as well by:

  1. Take a walk with them. Weight-bearing exercises are great for maintaining healthy bone density.

  2. Ensure they get enough calcium and vitamin D since both help build strong bones.

  3. Have her schedule a bone density scan to help determine bone loss and bone breaks. This scan should be repeated every two years to keep track of bone health.

  4. Talk to your Jeffery’s Drug Store Pharmacist to find out what other supplements and prescriptions can help the remarkable woman in your life maintain good bone health.
