Continued research has expanded the umbrella of rheumatic diseases to include more than 100 arthritis-related conditions; the number of people affected is estimated to be around 70 million. The foundation serves them through community-based clinics, educational resources, support and home study groups, and exercise classes. The Arthritis Foundation's information service responds to questions phoned in or e-mailed by more than 140,000 people each year. An important outreach tool for the foundation is Arthritis Today magazine. Issued bimonthly, this commercial publication informs Americans with arthritis-related illness of advances in quality-of-life issues and treatments. Medical journalists are recognized with awards honoring accurate writing on arthritis.

As with strength training, it is important to approach aerobic exercise slowly and progress gradually. Depending on your current fitness level, you may want to start with as little as two minutes of activity, three times per day and work your way up to a single 20-30 minute session, three to five times per week. Listen to your body. If you experience pain that lasts longer than one hour after exercise or notice increased swelling/weakness and decreased range of motion, modify your exercise routine or check with your healthcare provider. The Arthritis Foundation has developed in-class programs and exercise DVDs to help individuals with arthritis exercise safely and effectively.Arthritis

This infection often starts with a red mark that is surrounded by a light ring or halo, which occurs on the skin at the site where your child was bitten by the tick. Later, a rash may appear on other areas of the body. The child also may develop flulike symptoms such as headache, fever, swollen glands, fatigue, and muscular aches and pain. Then arthritis may develop weeks to months after the skin rash.
