Arthritis in Australia

Arthritis is an umbrella name for a group of conditions affecting the joints in the body. These conditions cause damage to the joints, usually resulting in pain, stiffness and discomfort. Arthritis can affect many different parts of the joint and nearly every joint in the body.

The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout, however there are over 100 different known types of the condition.

One common misconception is that Arthritis only occurs in the elderly, however in Australia 1 in 6 people have Arthritis. Arthritis affects all ages, and in Australia it is the leading cause of chronic pain, and the second most common cause of disability and early retirement due to ill health.

Whilst there is currently no cure for arthritis, there are a number of ways to manage the symptoms and minimise the pain caused by the condition.
