Living With Arthritis

  1. Action Plan for Osteoarthritis

    Taking arthritis medication is important, but what you do for yourself, including exercising, doing relaxation exercises and managing your emotions and attitudes, is just as crucial to your ability to lead an active, productive life.

  2. Arthritis and Exercise: Q and A

    Doctors and physical therapists say people with arthritis can improve their health and fitness through exercise without damaging their joints.

  3. Essential Self-Care for Arthritis

    If you have arthritis, taking your medication and following your doctor's orders are essential. But self-care can be just as important in your daily and long-term management of the disease.

  4. Living with a Rheumatic Disease

    With proper management, a rheumatic disease often does not have to hinder your daily activities.

  5. Managing Arthritis With Exercise

    Exercise has important health benefits for everyone -- regardless of age and physical condition. But for people with arthritis, working out regularly, and within their limits, is critical.

  6. Managing Rheumatoid Arthritis

    The treatment goals include reducing joint swelling, relieving stiffness, preventing joint damage and maintaining joint function.

  7. Understanding Your Osteoarthritis Medication

    Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, most often affects weight-bearing joints such as the knees and hips. It also can affect the hands and spine.
