May is National Arthritis Awareness Month!

National Arthritis Awareness Month, an awareness campaign initiated by the Arthritis Foundation, serves to educate Americans on all facets of this debilitating condition. An even more important emphasis of this campaign is the point that arthritis does not have to be inevitable or untreatable. There are many options available for treating and possibly preventing arthritis, including lifestyle changes and regular exercise. Through education, awareness and individualized treatment, quality of life can be greatly improved!  Throughout the month we will visit this topic and present facts on arthritis, warning signs and risk factors, and options for managing this condition.

There are many ways you can be a part of this important campaign, and there are a wealth of resources available this month to help you get involved! Located on the Arthritis Foundation’s website is the A to Z Action Zone page, which lists numerous ways to participate in this initiative:   http://www.arthritis.org/arthritis-action-zone.php.
