About one adult in ten suffers from osteoarthritis, and two or three per cent have rheumatoid arthritis.

He fills you in on what the treatment options are, and what each form of treatment is likely to involve. Treatment for rheumatism and arthritis shouldn't be delayed, so if you think you are a sufferer, you owe it to yourself to read this book.
