Young Adults with Arthritis

Video is Loading...

There are 200 different forms of arthritis and related musculoskeletal conditions. Contrary to common perceptions, these conditions are not confined to the elderly but also affect young people. There is no known cause, and no cure.

In these 'Speaking From Experience' video clips, seven people aged 22-36 offer candid accounts of their experiences, covering diagnosis, personal impact, managing their conditions, employment, relationships and lifestyle. They discuss their situations, their uncertainties and some of their hard times. They also offer useful ideas to consider, tips to focus on and thought provoking comments. They were produced in partnership with MOVE muscle, bone and joint health (previously Arthritis Foundation).
