In the first three sections of this review, studies of disability among patients with musculoskeletal conditions are discussed. Evidence continues to demonstrate that arthritis has a substantial impact on disability. Correlates of disability for patients with general musculoskeletal conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis are reviewed, as are strategies to ameliorate arthritis-related disability. The fourth section of this review highlights the importance of pain-coping strategies for arthritis patients. The concluding section reviews educational strategies in the rheumatic diseases.
