Coping with Osteoarthritis: Sound, Compassionate Advice for People Dealing with the Challenges of Osteoarthritis
The Arthritis Foundation of America estimates that about 15.8 million people in the United States suffer from osteoarthritis. In the newly revised and updated Coping with Osteoarthritis, psychologist Dr. Robert Phillips dispenses informed, compassionate advice about living with this potentially crippling disorder. This best-selling title of Avery's Coping with ... series was designed to give patients and their families a better understanding of osteoarthritis, helping them to cope with the everyday problems and changes they can expect to face during the progression of the disease.
Divided into four parts, the book begins with the medical aspects of osteoarthritis -- what it is and different treatment options. Parts Two through Four look at important aspects of living with osteoarthritis, including successfully coping with different emotions having the disease might cause, making lifestyle changes, interacting with family, your physician, and others. The book also includes information and coping strategies for those living with a person with osteoarthritis.
Coping with Osteoarthritis will help those suffering from this debilitating condition and their families successfully manage the challenges of living with osteoarthritis.
