September is Arthritis Awareness Month and Arthritis Society Canada is using the opportunity to sound the alarm about the seriousness of arthritis. It’s time to get more people on board to help extinguish its fire. Arthritis impacts people of all ages in communities from coast to coast to coast.
Arthritis is a collection of conditions affecting joints and other tissues. It causes pain, restricts mobility and diminishes quality of life.
It’s serious. 1 in 5 Canadians live every day with arthritis and there is no cure.
