Arthritis Support, Facts and Treatment Options
Arthritis can be life altering. Simple daily tasks can become difficult and painful, which can keep you from work or from doing things you love.1
Adjusting isn’t always easy. Learning about your particular type of arthritis may help. It’s likely your type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, or “wear-and-tear” arthritis, because it is the most common type,1 but there are other types of arthritis as well.2
In addition to medication, simple lifestyle changes may offer you symptom relief for arthritis.1
