Arthritis Rehabilitation

How much do you know about arthritis? Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the U.S., and affects three-quarters of people over age 60.

The most common types of arthritis affect joints in the fingers, knees, feet, ankles, hips, back, and shoulders. Symptoms can include pain, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty moving a joint.
