Morning stiffness, painful joints, restricted range of motion, bone spurs, and in some cases deformity of the joints – these are the symptoms of osteoarthritis. There are over 100 different types of arthritis; most commonly affecting the joints of the hands, hips, knees, and spine. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition where the cartilage that protects the joints wears down. This degeneration is partly due to free radical damage to the cartilage.
80% of Americans suffer from this disease!
It is estimated that over 40 million Americans have some degree of osteoarthritis and the likelihood of osteoarthritis increases as we age, affecting 80% of those over 50!

At PATH we are able to take action and prevent disease progression, as we analyze your brain chemistry. We all have vulnerabilities and errors; knowing your weaknesses is crucial in order to prohibit genetic disposition from becoming genetic determination!
