Today, millions of Americans are affected by
some form of arthritis. Arthritis is the
leading cause of pain and disability in the
United States. There are more than 100 types
of arthritis, but it has three tell-tale
signs: pain, stiffness, and swollen joints.
Fatigue is also common.
While some types of arthritis can be mildly nagging, other forms of arthritis can be serious and debilitating. Accurate and early diagnosis is important to minimizing joint damage and disability while maximizing and preserving mobility and function.
