Arthritis


Arthritis Doesn’t Have to Win

What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is an incredibly debilitating disease causing pain, inflammation, stiffness, and limitation of movement. As the most common cause of chronic disability, it can often keep you from performing daily activities and fully enjoying your life.

However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel! There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to do all of the activities that you love to do – being active, playing a sport, lifting your children or your grandchildren, or simply sitting at the computer and updating your Facebook status.
