The cold winter months can bring increased pain and discomfort for those who have arthritis or chronic pain. Arthritis is one of the most prevalent chronic health problems and the nation’s leading cause of disability with nearly 1 in 5 adults affected. It is second only to heart disease as a cause of work disability.
Arthritis-related joint problems include pain, stiffness, inflammation, and damage to joint cartilage and surrounding structures. Such damage can interfere with the most basic tasks such as walking, climbing stairs, using a computer keyboard, cutting your food, or brushing your teeth.
