Prevent & Manage Arthritis

Because arthritis is an umbrella term for over 100 conditions, disorders and diseases, there is not a simple answer, much less one correct answer, for how to prevent and/or manage arthritis. However, there are some guiding principles that you can follow.

 Educate yourself about arthritis.  Learning all you can about your form of arthritis will help you manage your symptoms. And, in the case of osteoarthritis, you might be able to prevent or slow the progression of it.

Be physically active.  Physical activity and weight management are important and can help manage the pain and stiffness from many forms of arthritis. Whether you are starting your own routine or want to join a program, there are many options for you to choose from.

Protect your joints.  Whether you are working out or working in the yard or just looking for a way to be kind to your hard-working joints, it is important to minimize the trauma they experience. Here are some tips to help protect joints  and keep them feeling better.

 Get involved.  Find out how you can help those who have arthritis and those who may get it in the future. Through Advocacy, Public Health and Research, the Arthritis Foundation helps people with arthritis live better today and create better tomorrows through new treatments, better access to care, and ultimately cures.
