May is National Arthritis Month, raising awareness among Americans of the various diseases and conditions that we know collectively as “arthritis.” They afflict more than 50 million adults in the U.S., and of those, more than half (about 27 million) have osteoarthritis (OA).
Rheumatoid arthritis (which I prefer to call rheumatoid disease) affects just one-and-a-half million Americans.
