The definition of a chronic condition is a health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects. The term chronic is typically applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months. This can include arthritis, chronic pain, asthma, obesity, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and other conditions that you live with on a daily or weekly basis, which significantly limit day-to-day activities. If you or a loved one suffers from a chronic health condition, “spring” into action by attending LRGHealthcare’s Better Choices, Better Health 6-week workshop.
