Arthritis Foundation

Jul 18, 2008
The Arthritis Foundation is one of the most straightforward and helpful websites on the world wide web. Maybe you or a loved one has already been diagnosed with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, gout, lyme disease, fibromyalgia or any one of the other 100 inflammatory ailments that fall under the "arthritis" banner. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the importance of an early diagnosis cannot be overstated when it comes to pain management and protecting your joints.

We talk about osteoarthritis when the disease is the result of the effect of physical pressure on the body that results in wear and tear. Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, happens because the immune system attacks the cell lining of the joint.

The "Life Improvement Series" program is designed to help sufferers with pain management and functionality. The "Joints In Motion" marathon training program and "The Jingle Bell Run/Walk" are two more events that help raise money and connect people with arthritis, to find greater strength in numbers.

The only national non-profit organization that supports all the, over 100, different types of arthritic variants and who are recognized for it is the, self titled, "Arthritis Foundation". They are one of the top centers out there the moment.

Another fact of this foundation is that they are the largest contributor to research in the world. They partner with a lot of other organizations out there and together they try to fight against this all to common but serious disease.

In Singapore the largest public organization for arthritis is The National Arthritis Foundation and they are registered charity over there. They are helping patients and their families. Their motto is to care for patients, do research and ultimately cure the disease. They also want to educate people around the world about the conditions of it.

Osteoarthritis is a form of disability and most will have to forego active participation in their daily lives but they are instances of people getting on with life and one such example is John Elway who was once a Denver Bronco player but became spokesperson for Game Plan for OA, part of the American Arthritis Foundation program. John Elway has demonstrated that sticking to the guidelines provided can help one to manage arthritis in addition to assist them to lead normal lives.

All the relevant information related to arthritis from 1985 to 2006 can be found in the American Arthritis Foundation. The figures for the corresponding period of arthritis patients has gone up from thirty five million to forty six million and arthritis is chronic and the one of the foremost cause of disability for people that are age fifteen years and above, just after heart disease.
