Arthritis South Australia - we're here to help you

Welcome to Arthritis South Australia. We are a charitable organisation here to support you, whether you have arthritis and are in pain, have difficulty moving as well as you would like to, or if you want to help someone close to you who lives with arthritis.

Arthritis South Australia is committed to improving the quality of life of people with arthritis and related conditions. They can be babies, because sadly even kids get arthritis too, through to the elderly. We are dedicated to reducing the social and economic burdens of arthritis. We do this by funding research, providing education and giving support. We also create awareness about arthritis and advocate on behalf of people with arthritis at all levels of government.

This website gives you information about some of the more common types of arthritis, provides information and tips to help you manage arthritis, showcases cutting edge research, offers details on courses that you can book into, ...and much more.

Arthritis South Australia is a not-for-profit organisation that relies upon both memberships and donations to fund its many activities. We hope you find the information here useful and we welcome feedback, a donation or recommendation.

Thank you!
