Did you know that arthritis is one of the most common long term diseases in Australia? According to recent research, more than 15.2% of Australia’s population (3.85 million people) have arthritis (AIHW 2010). Arthritis is also the 8th most commonly managed problem by GPs in Australia (Britt et al. 2009).
So the next time your arthritis has you feeling a bit flat and isolated, take heart in the fact that you are not alone and help is available.
