Adapted Clothing for World Arthritis Day – 12th October

Thursday 12th October is World Arthritis Day #WAD2017 and this year the message is Early arthritisDiagnosis:  Don’t Delay, Connect Today.

Early diagnosis is key to preventing further damage, but rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) often receive delayed or no diagnosis. If not treated appropriately, daily activities are affected – reducing peoples’ quality of life and affecting physical abilities.

This is often due to a lack of awareness – it’s important to know the symptoms of RMDs, and to contact a healthcare professional if you have concerns.

  • Inflammation indicated by joint swelling, stiffness, redness, and/or warmth
  • Persistent muscle and joint pain
  • Tenderness
  • Extreme fatigue, lack of energy, weakness, or a feeling of malaise
