    Default Arthritis as a Work-Related Injury

    Do you believe that arthritis should be considered a work related problem and therefore covered by Workers Compensation?

    Default Re: Arthritis as a Work-Related Injury

    You should begin a thread of your own...this one is from 2003.

    Arthritis is not in inself a work injury... aggreviation to a preexsisting condition, or injury can be compensable.
    There isn't any "treatment" to "cure'' from arthritis... only antiflammatory/pain medication to "relieve" from the injury/illness.
