Shoulder Replacement May Help for Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis

knee replacements are common, a similar surgery to replace diseased
shoulder joints also appears worthwhile for rheumatoid arthritis

medication or physical therapy, new research suggests.
Health Tip: Exercising With Arthritis
Exercise can help ease the pain and
discomfort of arthritis, but it may be easier to get active at
certain times of day when your arthritis isn't flaring.
