Arthritis FoundationNational Arthritis Awareness Month

May is National Arthritis Awareness month. Arthritis is not as uncommon as one would think, on the contrary, the disease is very common and 3 million cases are diagnosed a year. On a national level, 1 in 4 American battle with Arthritis – impacting 54 million Americans, of which 300,000 are children. Many people think there is one arthritis, but there are actually over 100 types of arthritis. The two main types are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis damage the joints in a different way. Osteoarthritis causes cartilage to break down. Rheumatoid Arthritis causes the immune system to attack the joints. Some symptoms are pain, stiffness, swelling, redness, decreased range of motion. What are your risks of developing arthritis? The most common risk factors are family history, age, sex, joint injury, and obesity. 

The Arthritis Foundation 

The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to help and support people manage their arthritis to live their best lives. Arthritis is best described as a disruptive disease because it disrupts the quality of one’s life – moderately and severely. 

Often invisible and forgotten, arthritis steals quality of life and can make doing everyday tasks difficult if not impossible.

The Foundation works to fund research, discover treatments, and ultimately source a cure! What makes their efforts different than others? The Arthritis Foundation sources innovative research, advocates through healthcare policy, and efforts to foster accessible and affordable care, but most of all the Arthritis Foundation is trusted.
