Arthritis Answers iving with osteoarthritis (OA) can be like navigating a maze: You’re going along in (seemingly) the right direction … then you hit a dead end and are forced to take a different path. For the 27 million Americans who live with the complex and evolving condition, figuring out how best to traverse this maze means getting answers. Does having arthritis in your hand mean you will get it in your knees, too? What can you do to slow its progression? Vim & Vigor spoke with David G.
