The word “arthritis” simply means joint inflammation but for people living with arthritis it means being unable to physically function day to day without pain. This affects your ability to work, to enjoy leisure activities, or to complete basic activities of daily living. Did you know that 3/5 people with arthritis symptoms are actually working age and not our elderly population? In fact, according to The Arthritis Society of Canada, arthritis is “a leading cause of disability in Canada that affects more women than men, and is reported in 55% of people under the age of 65.”

Facts on Arthritis

  • It is a condition that can affect joints (causing joint stiffness), tendons, bones, ligaments and overall musculoskeletal system.
  • There are two main types of arthritis: osteoarthritis (from wear and tear to your joint’s cartilage over many years) and autoimmune types (body’s immune system attacks the joint capsule causing inflammation and swelling). Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common type.
  • It is the number one reported chronic condition by women and the third most chronic reported condition by men in Canada.
  • Obesity, smoking, and lack of physical activity is linked to arthritis symptoms.
