World Arthritis Day

We use our joints for most physical activities, so what happens when your joints become inflamed and painful? Arthritis is a type of joint pain that is the symptom of several diseases. World Arthritis Day was established in 1996 by Arthritis and Rheumatism International (ARI) in order to raise awareness about Arthritis and its effects – not just on the elderly, but on the whole of society. Famous individuals with Arthritis include Tiger Woods, Neve Campbell, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant and Bruce Jenner.  You can find out a bit more on the official Facebook page.
