Vim & Vigor - Summer 2012 - University of Virginia - (Page 14)
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. Borenstein, M.D., a rheumatologist and author of several books on arthritis and back pain, and Stanley Zimmerman, 77, who has lived well with arthritis for 30 years. Here, they tackle these and other arthritis questions from their unique perspectives to help you get answers.
