The Mayo Clinic on Managing Arthritis Book 2013 focuses on the 2 most common forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, but includes information that may be useful if you have one of the more than 100 other forms of arthritis. Much of the information in this book is based on what Mayo Clinic doctors, nurses and therapists use in caring for their clients. 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. The arthritis experts at Mayo Clinic want to help arthritis sufferers reduce their pain and disability by sharing effective treatment strategies based on medical research and practice. This new 320-page book provides readers with practical knowledge to use in daily living, to live more productively and more comfortably with arthritis. Part 1: Understanding arthritis focuses on osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Part 2: Treating arthritis 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: Living with arthritis offers an in-depth guide for managing daily activities. "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.
