Description

Working with arthritis: Since we spend a significant part of our lives working, it’s important to know how to protect your joints and navigate the issues that can arise when you live with arthritis. This is what the website Arthritis and Work is all about. Whatever kind of work you do, be it paid or unpaid, full time or occasional, physically demanding or more sedentary, this information is for you. We encourage you to dive in and find what’s relevant to you.
