Arthritis - more specifically osteoarthritis - is the most common musculoskeletal problem seen in general medical practice. Arthritis often places an overwhelming burden on individuals in terms of their ability to remain active. This can affect other aspects of these individuals' health and can lead to a downward spiral that can be difficult to overcome.
