Arthritis refers to more than 100 types of conditions and diseases that affect a person’s joints and joint tissues and can cause a wide range of symptoms including pain and can lead to loss of function. While experts estimate that nearly 60 million adults in the United States have some type of arthritis, according to the CDC, less than half experience persistent pain or other symptoms that limit their daily activities. An arthritis diagnosis is not, therefore, an automatic sentence to a lifetime of chronic pain.

Learn from Physical Therapist Scott Hein how, when combined with physical therapy treatment, consistent exercise and other healthy lifestyle choices, an understanding of how pain works can lead to successful arthritis management.
