  • Dietary adjustments
  • Supplements, such as joint supplements or fish oil
  • Introduction of pain medications
  • Routine labwork and imaging
  • Routine diagnostics such as blood pressure or eye pressure checks
  • Household environment modifications, such as orthopedic beds or help-me-up harnesses
  • Hygiene modifications
  • Quality of life discussions
