Center for Rheumatology & Bone Health

When they work properly, our bones and joints help us walk, dance, play sports and hug the people we love. Some chronic inflammatory diseases, however, can cause morning stiffness, redness and swelling, affecting people at any age. But, it doesn’t have to be that way.
