Lead a more comfortable and active life

If you have arthritis, you have lots of company. More than 46 million Americans have it, and it's the No. 1 cause of disability in the U.S.

Mayo Clinic wants to help you reduce the pain and disability associated with the two most common forms of arthritis — osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

How? By sharing with you much of the same practical, state-of-the-art knowledge that our doctors, nurses and therapists use in caring for our patients. Based on medical research and practice, many effective treatment strategies are now available to you.

It's all in our new 320-page book, Mayo Clinic on Arthritis: How to manage pain and lead an active life. This book brings you powerful, potentially life-altering news ...

If you understand your condition and its treatment options, you can live more productively and more comfortably with arthritis. Put this practical knowledge to use in daily living and quickly see the benefits.

Our new book includes useful information for more than 100 forms of arthritis.

  • Part 1 focuses on osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Part 2 covers all the latest treatments, including a medications guide and chapters on joint surgery, pain control, complementary and alternative treatments and promising new therapies.
  • Part 3 offers an in-depth guide to living with arthritis.

"When you learn that you have arthritis, you might fear the worst — a life hobbled by pain and disability. Mayo Clinic on Arthritis should put those fears to rest by providing you with tools to gain control over the disease." — April Chang-Miller, M.D., Medical Editor

In Mayo Clinic on Arthritis, you'll also learn about promising trends in diagnosis and treatment … tips on pain control … and remaining active. Plus learn about ...

  • How to slow progression and relieve pain of osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, while also improving joint function.
  • Arthritis and weather — what do doctors say about the connection?
  • Several types of hand surgery can help control or reverse arthritis-related problems.

Scientists continue to look for ways to ease the wear and tear of use on joints and the breakdown of protective cartilage. They're also searching for the means to correct an over-reactive immune system capable of triggering a damaging inflammatory response in your joints.

The results of such research are what have led to many of the treatments you'll learn about in the book.

"The more you know about arthritis, the more you can do to treat it effectively. Building on decades of progress in medical research and practice, Mayo Clinic on Arthritis shows you a path for living as actively and comfortably as possible." — April Chang-Miller, M.D., Medical Editor
