The only Spanish-language book on arthritis that is current and focused on self-care, this useful guide encourages sufferers to take a proactive approach in controlling their symptoms. Particular care was taken in the translation to accommodate cultural differences and to use standard vocabulary generally understood in most Spanish-speaking communities. El único libro en español sobre la artritis que es corriente y guiado hacia el cuidado propio, esta guía anima al paciente a tomar un papel activo en el control y manejo de los síntomas. La traducción fue hecha de manera cuidadosa, logrando la mayor cobertura posible en el mundo hispano parlante.
