If you have arthritis, you are not alone. More than 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis and it is the No. 1 cause of disability in the country. Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more of your joints, causing joint pain and stiffness that typically worsen with age. Of the over 100 kinds of arthritis, the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. John M. Davis III, a Mayo Clinic rheumatologist, will discuss arthritis, and the latest edition of the book, "Mayo Clinic on Arthritis — How to Manage Pain and Lead an Active Life". Also on the program, Dr. Stephen Kopecky, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, will discuss how heart disease can be reversed. And Dr. Andre Terzic, director of Mayo Clinic's Center for Regenerative Medicine, will explain how regenerative medicine is helping patients.
