Are you young, old, rich, poor, male or female? Then you may be a candidate for arthritis. Arthritis is particularly common among:

  • amateur athletes
  • heavy equipment laborers
  • outdoor workers
  • aging seniors
  • overweight persons of any age

If you’ve been injured or if there’s a history of arthritis in your family, it may claim you as a victim.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, it’s impossible to get an exact count of arthritis sufferers because many people, believing they just have a temporary ache or pain, self-medicate using over-the-counter remedies rather than consulting a physician and learning that they are in the first stages of arthritis.
