People of all ages are living with arthritis. Although there is no cure for arthritis, good management is essential to maintain function and prevent further damage.

This Living with Arthritis Programme consists of 3 workshops which aim to teach you practical ways of managing your arthritis during daily life activities.

Programme Overview

Week 1

This Workshop will aim to enhance your understanding of the various forms of arthritis. The session will also cover education on joint health and introduce you to the principles of joint protection.

Week 2

This Workshop will aim to develop your knowledge around protecting your joints while you perform your daily life activities. The session will offer a practical focus by teaching you ways of doing your daily activities in a way that limits stress and strain on your joints and reduces your risk of joint pain, inflammation and damage. There will be a particular focus on arthritis of the hands, although people with arthritis of any joint will benefit.

Week 3

This Workshop will conclude our arthritis management programme with a more holistic lifestyle focus on managing your arthritis. During this final week, we will explore stress and fatigue management techniques, as well as some advice on sleeping well when you have arthritis.
