Arthritis

Arthritis is a serious medical condition that millions of people suffer from in all stages of life. It affects the joints in the human body, making them stiff, swollen, and/or painful. There are many types of arthritis; the two most common being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osetoarthritis is said to affect approximately 21 million Americans, while rheumatoid arthritis is said to affect approximately 1% of American adults.

Currently it is unknown what causes arthritis, nor is there a perfect cure. However, there are several steps you can take to live a healthy and happy life with the condition.

If you have persistent joint pain, swelling, and/or stiffness for more than two weeks, you are encouraged to meet with your doctor for a possible diagnosis and discussion of treatment options.
