Osteoarthritis: The Facts helps patients and their carers better understand the condition, empowering patients with the knowledge and skills to actively take charge of their own health by knowing as much as they can about osteoarthritis, and finding out how this can be best managed. Part 1 details what osteoarthritis is, what causes it, who it affects, what the main symptoms are, how it is diagnosed, and what the long-term outcome is. Part 2 explains the potential aspects of management that can be used for osteoarthritis, including self-management strategies, exercise, diet, medications, surgical treatments, and alternative therapies. Osteoarthritis: The Facts also includes a useful resources section, including information on support groups and websites, providing the reader with an opportunity to educate and empower themselves with tools that will help reduce their suffering.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition
This informative book will enable anyone - especially people recently diagnosed - to understand osteoarthritis and plan their lifestyle [and] identify questions for health professionals...an excellent reference. * Arthritis News, July 2009 *
...the authors have packed a huge amount of information into a small, neat book that's patient-friendly and accessible. They go into detail about the various treatments and therapies available - everything from analgesia to surgery, anti-depressants, to acupuncture. I just wish I'd been able to read it all those years ago. * Maeve Binchy in The Daily Mail, June 2008 *
