How to reduce your risk of arthritis


Arthritis is the leading cause of chronic pain and the second most common cause of disability and early retirement due to ill health in Australia.

There are more than 100 types of arthritis and related conditions, each with individual features and risk factors.

Although there is no sure way to prevent arthritis, we can help reduce our risk and delay the potential onset of certain types.

Some risk factors aren’t modifiable, so there really isn’t anything you can do about them, such as being female and having a family history of arthritis.

However there are risk factors that can be changed in order to reduce risk, delay onset or even prevent arthritis, like obesity, smoking and having an unhealthy diet.

3.6 million Australians have arthritis. That’s 1 in 7 people.

So what can we do to try to reduce our risk of arthritis?
