Nearly 47 million people in the US suffer from some form of arthritis or chronic joint problems. Arthritis, an inflammation of a joint, often is identified by pain, swelling and limited movements in joints and connective tissue. While there is no cure for arthritis, there are a variety of ways to manage the condition. Physicians at this talk will discuss these options.
