Depression as a symptom of arthritis: treatment, coping strategies, and support

Depression often goes hand-in-hand with rheumatoid arthritis; sometimes as a symptom and sometimes because of the stress of living with the disease, among other reasons.

Pain researchers are discovering how emotions, thoughts, and behaviours can influence the level of pain someone experiences and how well they adjust to it. In this issue of JointHealth™ monthly find out some of the links between rheumatoid arthritis and depression, depression and pain. Also, if you are faced with stress and depression as part of your experience of arthritis, you may find the coping strategies provided in this issue helpful.
