Millions of adults over 50 live with arthritis. The parts of the body that are most often affected include the hand, spine, hip, and knee. If you have arthritis, you can take some steps to stay active and comfortable. Medications, exercise, and complementary therapies, such as massage, can help.



Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints by breaking down the slippery tissue covering the ends of bones. OA occurs mostly in older people, although younger people who have injured or stressed a joint are at higher risk, as well.  Read

Keeping uric acid levels low through proper diet and nutrition can help reduce or eliminate symptoms.  Read
