Written by two experienced medical doctors, The Encyclopedia of Arthritis provides reliable, comprehensive coverage of the topic in an accessible A-to-Z format. Written for lay readers but useful to professionals, the book covers definitions of specific types of arthritis; symptoms, causes, and diagnoses; medications, pain management, and possible treatments; and much more. Relevant appendixes make statistics and resources easy to access, and information on drugs used for treatment is included. Directories of organizations, periodicals, and Internet resources, as well as an extensive bibliography help make this the ideal first stop for research on the disease.
