Total Joint Replacement May Prevent Cardiovascular Disease
It is no secret that cardiovascular disease presents a huge problem in today’s society. Oftentimes, individuals who are disabled or are suffering from arthritis have a higher risk of contracting various cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke, heart attack and deep vein thrombosis. It is because of their immobility that creates blockage in the arteries over time and can lead to serious health issues if not corrected, and can even cause death.
Fortunately, there have been promising studies that shed some light on a procedure that could help alleviate cardiovascular diseases in disabled individuals. A total joint replacement procedure has been shown to decrease the chance of cardiovascular disease in disabled patients to a staggering 40% less than individuals who did not receive a total joint replacement. These results may persuade individuals to seriously consider receiving a total joint replacement: the procedure itself can give you your mobility back as well as take preventive action from cardiovascular diseases that can become fatal.
How Does a Total Joint Replacement Prevent Cardiovascular Disease?
The biggest risk factor for contract any cardiovascular disease is general immobility. Patients that suffer from disability and osteoarthritis are at a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases because of their inability to be as mobile as your average person. Immobility causes the blood vessels to clot over time and is the catalyst for a variety of cardiovascular diseases.
Fortunately, there is a solution that can take preventive action against this dilemma. Total joint replacement is a procedure that replaces bad joints effected by osteoarthritis or other causes and gives the patient the ability to become mobile again. After receiving a total joint replacement, the patient is able to become mobile, which can help restrengthen muscles and bones, as well as keeping cardiovascular diseases at bay.
Total Joint Replacement And You
Treating that painful joint and allowing yourself to become mobile once again may become a top priority on your to do list, not just for walking’s sake. Movement will always help prevent cardiovascular diseases and keep yourself generally healthy. Be sure to consult with your family physician here at Trinity Orthopedics to determine the best exercises you can practice to keep your joints healthy and improve cardiovascular flow throughout your body.
