What Percentage of Seniors Have Arthritis?

Seniors Have Arthritis

For many aging adults, arthritis is something that happens daily, affecting one’s ability to do daily tasks and perform basic activities of daily living (ADLs). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports, almost half of all people aged 65 years or older in the United States have doctor-diagnosed arthritis.

Along with age, obesity can play a role in arthritis, as people with higher weights are more likely to suffer from arthritis.
