  • FREE Arthritis Information for Hispanic Seniors

  • Arthritis is one of the most common diseases in the U.S., affecting millions of adults and half of all people age 65 and older. Although there is no cure for most forms of arthritis, treatment can help patients manage their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life. The choice of treatment depends on the type of arthritis, the severity of symptoms, the patient's general health, and other factors.

    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is offering a free fact sheet in Spanish about treatments for the most common forms of arthritis -- osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. "Consejos Sobre la Artritis"

    To order copies of "Consejos Sobre la Artritis", call 1-800-222-2225 toll free. The NIA Information Center is open weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. eastern time or go to our Web site at www.niapublications.org
