When dealing with arthritis, chronic pain can interfere with daily life.
When you have a type of arthritis or a related condition, pain can chronic or long-lasting. It’s important to get to the root cause of your pain in order to determine if you have arthritis or another condition. Then your treatment plan can be tailored to your unique needs, and may include medical treatments, alternative therapies or positive lifestyle habits, such as exercise.
