Health Tip and Practice Info
Rheumatoid Arthritis Awareness Month
Rheumatoid Arthritis is an inflammation of the membranes or tissues that line the joints, leading to pain and disability. Once this occurs, the damage is permanent, which makes early detection and treatment critical. Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs in men and women but women between 40 and 60 are twice as likely to develop the condition, particularly if there is a family history of the disease.

Allergy season continues
If you are one of the 35 million Americans who suffer from seasonal allergies, you may already have noticed a change in the air.
Sometimes extra precautions during the height of allergy season are necessary to avoid severe reactions. Increasing your knowledge about allergies could help prevent you or a loved one from requiring emergency care for allergy-related attacks.
You can learn the daily pollen count in your area by visiting www.pollen.com and entering your zip code.
The continuing advice of your doctor is crucial to the long-term treatment of allergic conditions.
