The Global Healthy Living Foundation has been providing education, support, research, and advocacy on arthritis for more than two decades through our patient community CreakyJoints. The definition of arthritis is the inflammation or swelling of one or more joints, which causes pain, stiffness, and limited mobility. But arthritis is a lot more complicated than that. There are more than 100 types of arthritis and each can have a profound impact on your daily life and long-term health. We believe that the more you know about your type of arthritis, the better you can manage it. At CreakyJoints, you can learn about arthritis causes, symptoms, and treatments — and find advice and support for living with arthritis.
