May is Arthritis Awareness Month

Spearheaded by the Arthritis Foundation, May is Arthritis Awareness Month. The goal is to increase awareness of arthritis. Better understanding arthritis can benefit both patients with arthritis and people who are not afflicted with the disease. Arthritis is often misunderstood, largely due to misconceptions, misinformation, and old wives tales which persist.

Arthritis is the nation’s leading cause of disability. According to the Arthritis Foundation, 46 million men, women and children live with arthritis in the United States.

Here are some ways to learn more and get involved:

Learn: Discovery Health has a great online resource that is wealth of information including arthritis news, treatments and more.

Read: Published by the experts at the Arthritis Foundation,
Arthritis Today provides valuable information to help you learn to live with arthritis.

Move: Arthritis Awareness Month is a time to motivate Americans to get up and moving, while raising funds for arthritis research, support and advocacy. The Arthritis Walk is the Arthritis Foundation’s annual nationwide event that supports public awareness and raises funds to fight arthritis.
