Osteoporosis Canada together with Arthritis Society Canada presents Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis: What You Need To Know.

Despite the fact that osteoporosis, arthritis and osteoarthritis (a form of arthritis) are completely different conditions, they are frequently confused, in particular osteoporosis and osteoarthritis because both names start with “osteo.”

Dr. Heather McDonald-Blumer, a rheumatologist and Lisa Robinson, Registered Physiotherapist discuss each condition, how they differ, what makes them similar and if you have osteoarthritis and osteoporosis – how you can manage both conditions.
