Take Action to Improve Your Health! Increase Your Awareness of Arthritis and Jump Start Your Summer by Staying Active During Arthritis Action Month
The month of May marks Arthritis Action Month nationally. Throughout the month, individuals are encouraged to make personal actions to change the course of their arthritis. May is also a great time to raise our awareness of this chronic health condition. Adults who have arthritis can use physical activity as a step in their self-management plan to help reduce pain and increase their mobility.
