World Rheumatoid Arthritis Day

October 12 is World Rheumatoid Arthritis Day.  As physical and occupational therapists, we know there is so much we can do to help these folks live better lives.  Subjects therapists focus on include mobility training, energy conservation techniques, adaptive equipment, and joint protection management are just a few.  We were inspired by all the great stories out there.  Here are three:
