Arthritis Support: The Key to Living with Arthritis Print E-mail

There are many important considerations for "living with arthritis". Successful treatment involves exercise, rest, the maintenance of ideal body weight, the local application of heat or cold, medication, and surgery. A positive mental outlook and the support of friends and family members is essential in minimizing the effect of arthritis upon a patient's well-being and ability to perform daily activities. Each patient will have to adapt to his or her own abilities and limitations and remain committed and optimistic about the ability to manage his or her arthritis through good medical, surgical and rehabilitative care.

For many people, support groups may also help. You can contact the National Arthritis Foundation at 800.283.7800 to find some groups near you. Or find the chapters near you by visiting their Web site at
