Do you know that chronic diseases are among the most prevalent and costly health conditions in the United States? According to the National Institute of Health in 2018, nearly half (approximately 45%, or 133 million) of all Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease, and the number is growing. More than two thirds of all deaths are caused by one or more of these five chronic diseases: heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes. Identifying these diseases and offering support in the form of education and treatment of functional declines in strength, balance, and endurance can improve the quality of life for individuals with chronic diseases.
