Arthritis is a serious and growing health crisis, striking 50 million Americans (one in every five adults) and about 300,000 children. In Alaska, more than 110,000 adults and 800 children are diagnosed with arthritis. It is a complex and incurable condition; two major types of arthritis alone - osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis - cost the U.S. economy more than $156 billion annually in lost wages and medical expenses.
