September is Arthritis Awareness Month

The numbers speak for themselves. And they need to change.

1 in 4 Canadian Women have arthritis.
3.5 million women are living with artrhitis.
Over 50% of Canadian women with arthritis are younger than 65.

If we don’t take action, this is set to rise to over 5 million women by 2040.

Research suggests that the toll can be significant: women with arthritis often report higher levels of sleep difficulties, stress, disability and depression compared to men living with arthritis, or women living with other chronic diseases. Though currently there is no cure for arthritis, there are steps women can take to self-manage their condition, to reduce their symptoms and to maximize their quality of life.
