For all healthcare professionals who have ever felt unable to provide effective therapy for this disease, or who have encountered negative patient and community attitudes to joint pain, Fast Facts: Osteoarthritis is essential reading.

Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder and represents a massive problem in our aging society. For most people, it is a syndrome of joint pain and stiffness, with associated functional problems that have a substantial impact on quality of life.

* expert guidance on well-established diagnostic criteria and investigations
* up-to-date, practical information on drug therapy, non-pharmacological treatments and surgical options
