World Arthritis Day

October, popularly host to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is also home to World Arthritis Day. The relative lack of awareness of this day consequently leads to lower general awareness about arthritis.

What is arthritis?

Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. A joint is the area where two bones meet. There are over 100 different types of arthritis. Sufferers include men and women, children and adults. Certain types of arthritis are heriditary. Infants born with arthritis suffer in constant pain which persists throughout their lives.

Emirates Arthritis Foundation is hosting the World Arthritis Day in Dubai. If you are available on the 12th and 13th of October, why not support the event by attending or volunteering?
