Arthritis

One in six Australians suffer with arthritis. That’s 3.9 million people. There are over 100 forms of arthritis and each form can affect you and your joints in different ways. The most important step to living with arthritis is understanding the type of arthritis you have and how it can be treated and managed.

Understanding arthritis

There are many forms of arthritis. ‘Arthritis’ is the name given to a group of conditions affecting the joints.
