Joint Health and Arthritis

Your joints keep your body moving—so it's important to take care of them. Find info on joint health, arthritis, pain relief, supplements, foods and more.

Introduction

Your busy life keeps you on the move. It's thanks to your joints that you can walk, run, bend, flex and move your body throughout the day.

But you might not think much about joint health until something goes wrong. An ache here, a pain there, maybe a little inflammation and moving may not come as easily anymore.

It might be due to injury, illness or even arthritis—but you're not exactly sure what's wrong.

To help you understand the signs, symptoms, causes and treatments surrounding joint health, we've gathered some important info and put it in one convenient place. From arthritis, knee pain, and overall joint pain, to rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and more—this is your go-to hub for joint health topics.

Because many conditions can affect the joints, it's important to see your healthcare provider (HCP) to discuss your symptoms, lifestyle and treatment options so you can get the joint pain relief you need.

Explore these topics, then discuss them with your HCP. By working together, you can find the answers you need to stay active and on the move.
