Written by Stewart G. Eidelson, MD

Welcome to the Patient Guide to Healthy Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis, a form of inflammatory arthritis, changes your life—which may sound like an over-the-top statement, but you know it's true. The chronic joint pain affects your work life, your home life, and how well you can do things that used to come easily. Gardening may not be as easy. Writing may be painful. Even walking can be tough, depending on which joints are affected by rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
We've put together this Patients' Guide to help you make healthy lifestyle choices every day as you take care of your rheumatoid arthritis. We cover diet, exercise, and stress management.

We even have a Rheumatoid Arthritis Exercises Slideshow so you can learn simple stretches and exercises to keep your joints mobile.

Living with rheumatoid arthritis can be tough—but our Patient Guide to Healthy Living with Rheumatoid Arthritis can make some of the day-to-day challenges easier.
