Perhaps the most common myth about arthritis is that it is a disease of the elderly. Affecting more than 50 million Americans, arthritis strikes at any age – two-thirds of people with arthritis are under the age of 65, including 300,000 children. Arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States and often has a negative impact on a person’s ability to work. Arthritis limits 1 of every 20 adults between the ages of 18 and 64.

Whether you are impacted by the condition or caregiving for someone with arthritis, there are many ways to reduce the adverse effects of arthritis at work and at home.
