Most Common Diseases That Restrict Mobility

Here are some of the most common diseases that can restrict mobility in adults:

Rheumatoid Arthritis 

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes extreme joint pain, affecting the whole body. Joint pain, joint swelling, loss of function, deformities, and stiffness are quite common in Rheumatoid Arthritis. While the symptoms of this type of chronic arthritis are mild to severe, the symptoms tend to flare up and then disappear completely. Your gender, age, weight, diet, family history, and smoking habits are some of the factors that can increase your chances of developing RA. 


Even though Osteoporosis and RA might seem similar, they are two different conditions. Osteoporosis can partially or permanently impair one’s ability to walk, causing severe back pain and loss of height. In this condition, the patient’s bones become dense, increasing risk of fractures.  Low calcium intake, family history, smoking habits, alcohol consumption, lack of physical activity, and amenorrhea, and some of the  factors that develop this silent disease.

Fractures & Injuries 

Whether it’s a temporary muscle pull, severe hip fracture, or brain injury, these physical problems can restrict mobility in adults. Even though fractures and injuries can happen to anyone, the physiologic changes of aging cause adults and elders to be at higher risk of falls. Some of the factors that cause fractures and injuries are the weakening of bones and vision, loss of flexibility in joints, and proprioception due to medications or neuropathy. 

Diabetes, Heart Disease & Obesity

Diabetes, heart diseases, and obesity might all seem like different health problems, but they are interlinked. Obesity spikes insulin and places the affected at risk of diabetes, resulting in a chance that it will also increase blood sugar levels. Research suggests that overweight individuals are three times more likely at risk of heart attack and type 2 diabetes than someone within the guidelines for normal or healthy weight.
