Arthritis means an inflamed joint of which there are many many types! We often think of the type that affects all of us to different degrees as we age but there are many different types, all affecting the body in different ways and to different degrees. I lecture postgraduates and undergraduates to raise awareness of these different types (which can be difficult to diagnose and therefore are often missed).
My aim is to reduce this delay to diagnosis and to improve the care that those living with these conditions receive. Arthritis can affect the young, old, athletic, sedentary and everything in between. People with arthritis can be in pain and look completely fine... not all disabilities are visible.
