Anyone who suffers from arthritis knows the toll it can take on daily life, making it hard to be active in any meaningful way. Professional golfer Kristy McPherson understands that better than most, having been diagnosed with a form of juvenile arthritis as a teenager. McPherson first began feeling symptoms of Still’s disease when she was just 11 years old, and it took years to both find the exact cause and determine which medication could best help her combat the stiffness and pain. McPherson had to give up many of the sports she loved, but she developed a passion for golf instead. Today, she manages her condition with a prescription anti-inflammatory, along with dietary supplements, baths, and regular (gentle) exercise.
