How Many Americans Suffer from Arthritis Pain?

Chronic pain is a major health problem in the United States and is one of the most weakening effects of arthritis. More than 40 million Americans suffer from some form of arthritis, and many have chronic pain that limits daily activity. Osteoarthritis is by far the most common form of arthritis, affecting about 16 million Americans, while rheumatoid arthritis, which affects about 2.1 million Americans, is the most crippling form of the disease.

    Spine-Health has a sister site called Arthritis-Health. We also monitor that forum but can't get any discussions going.
    This would be very good information, if you would like, to post there, maybe we could get something going.
    Thank you very much.
