There are around 200 different musculoskeletal conditions, and it’s important to understand exactly which one they have before exploring any therapies or treatments.
There are lots of different ways you can help us raise awareness of the impact that arthritis has, such as campaigning or volunteering at one of our events.
You may have to make reasonable adjustments to your working environment or practices to help people with arthritis perform at their best.
