Our April #RheumChat was co-hosted by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducts research and supports programs for people with arthritis so they can work and do other daily activities, have less pain, manage their own care, and delay disability. See information about the CDC’s Arthritis Program.

Here are a few of the questions that were covered. See the full recap below.
Q1: @CDCgov can you give us an update on adults w/ #arthritis in America?
Q2: Why should patients w/ #arthritis & other rheumatic conditions be physically active?
Q3: If you’re already in pain, how can you work through it to benefit from physical activity?
Q4: How can you make sure you don’t do too much too fast?
Q5: What should patients ask their #rheums about before starting a physical activity routine?
Q6: How can patients & #rheums find out about CDC recommended fitness programs in their community?
