Vision And Values

        
   
Arthritis statistics compiled by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion say that Arthritis and other rheumatic conditions are the main cause of disability in the USA. Costs to the U.S. economy totals more than $86.2 billion annually. Currently an estimated 43 million adults in the USA reported being diagnosed by a doctor to have some form of arthritis, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, gout or lupus. By the year 2030, they estimate that 64.9 million citizens will have been formally diagnosed with an arthritic condition. Inactive lifestyles is clearly a factor in the growing number of cases. Consistently people who are overweight or obese are being diagnosed with arthritis. Arthritis patients have significantly worse quality of life than those without arthritis. Arthritis has an attributable risk of 18.1% for major depressions. At CAC we educate & empower patients to take control of their life. We provide aggresive treatments to limit the damaging effects of arthritis. The goal is to protect and restore joint mobility.

Over 45 Million people in the U.S do not have health care coverage. This impacts the health and economics of our community. This also limits the longevity of the individuals without health insurance. Patients with arthritis or other Rheumatic diseases are particularly vulnerable and without treatment many become disabled. At CAC we have easy payment plans for individuals that don’t have health insurance. CAC’s vision is to provide quality health care to our community members. This sense of community and service separates us form the rest.
