Today, 12 October 2015, is World Arthritis Day!  Did you know that….

  • there are more than 200 different “rheumatic” (or musculoskeletal diseases), including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis?
  • Rheumatic disease will affect more that one-third of people at some point in their lives?
  • Arthritis can affect people of any age – it’s not just a disease of the elderly?
  • Many rheumatic diseases affect the whole body, including internal organs and body systems?
