Arthritis is Serious! It affects over 5 million Canadians, young and old, and can have life –threatening consequences.

At Arthritis Research Canada our purpose is to transform the lives of people living with arthritis through research and engagement, giving you the tools you need to triumph over pain and disability. While running is an activity providing many benefits to general health, for people with knee OA it can often cause concern. Do I need to stop running? Is it safe to continue?

We have assembled a team of world-class, research scientists who along with our team of patient partners are working diligently to find answers and save lives through practical arthritis research.

Our scientific team conducts research aimed at arthritis prevention, early diagnosis, better treatment, and improved quality of life. Our goal is to get research results into the hands of those who need it most, right now!

The Arthritis Research Education Series has been created to take an in-depth look at arthritis research that matters to you.

We are kicking off the Education Series with a multi-media presentation, addressing the popular topic of: Knee Osteoarthritis and Running.
