Monday 13th May is the start of Arthritis Care Week. With the theme of ‘Something Can Always Be Done’.The aim of Arthritis Care Awareness Week is to help and educate people in a relaxed environment. 

Arthritis in the UK is very common and affects some ten million people (one in six) of the UK population, many of whom are in constant pain.

But knowledge of arthritis is very low, misunderstanding and misinformation rife, and most people think that there’s nothing that they can do about it and that it’s inevitable. Says Arthritis Care acting CEO Phil Baker, ” We want to set the record straight during Arthritis Care Week as we believe that something can always be done”.
There are 200 types of arthritis and making even small changes to your lifestyle and managing symptoms will help. However, the first step is always the hardest so Arthritis Care say call their free and confidential helpline 0808 800 4050 or email them for help with your condition.



  1. Hello, I am reaching out to as many people as I can this month who are talking about arthritis awareness. This year, we wanted to show our support for this great cause by putting together this brand new infographic for National Arthritis Awareness Month! I know that the statistics concerning this medical condition can be rather shocking, especially when looking at the number of kids who are affected by some form of juvenile arthritis. There are still a number of misconceptions surrounding arthritis, but with this infographic I think that it could help dispel some of these, at least for those people who get a chance to see it.
