The Arthritis Foundation itself admits that arthritis, though quite common, is not very well understood. That’s because arthritis is not one single disease. It’s actually a very informal way of describing inflammation and pain in the joints. It can also be classified as joint disease.
familyfirst provides medical service and council for those who live with an arthritic condition.
Arthritis Comes in Many Forms
There are more than 100 different forms of arthritis. That might mean juvenile arthritis, lupus, osteoporosis, psoriatic arthritis, spinal stenosis, temporal arteritis, vasculitis, and the list goes on.
Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States (over 50 million American adults and over 300,000 children live with some type of arthritis). Don’t allow arthritis to take over your life and livelihood.
