Arthritis

Skip Intro

There are an estimated 40 million Americans with arthritis, affecting 1 out of every 7 individuals. Prevalence varies significantly depending upon the type of arthritis. For example, rheumatoid arthritis affects 2.1 million individuals while psoriatic arthritis affects 160,000. Women are affected by arthritis more than men; nearly 23 million women of all ages have arthritis. Arthritis is the number one cause of disability in America.
