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 suffers from 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 member based 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 about how our website can best serve you. We also welcome donations.

Membership better than ever....
Membership of Arthritis SA is better than ever with one major health insurance fund in South Australia reimbursing many of its "extras" customers their total membership fees.
Arthritis SA recommends that each Arthritis SA member with health fund "extras" check with their funds to see if they can get their total Arthritis SA membership fee back.
That's just the start of the good news for Arthritis SA memberships, now due for renewal. New membership payment options of three and five years are being offered, in addition to the usual one year membership options, kept at $25 for concession card holders and $40 without a concession card. Concession card holders can now pay $65 for three years of membership or $100 for five years. Non-concession card holders can get three years of membership for $100 and five years for $120.
Membership is one of the most valuable contributions you can make to your self-management and knowledge about arthritis. Member benefits include:
3 copies of Arthritis SA's magazine annually
Free entry into Arthritis SA consumer courses and seminars
Free entry into support groups of choice
Discounts on products available at Arthritis SA or on the website's shop
Ready access to health educators
