About

Online Arthritis Action Groups
https:/www.arthritisaction.org.uk/media-centre/events/
We are pleased to announce we are running Arthritis Action Group meetings online via Zoom, including a group for Leicestershire. The meetings are a way to connect with other people with arthritis, share experiences and tips, and support each other. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced How To guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.

Arthritis appropriate Exercise Videos

Many people living with a long-term health condition find it difficult to attend exercise classes. To help them, Arthritis Action recently launched a series of online chair based exercises developed with the aim of helping those with hip, knee or spinal Osteoarthritis more mobile and active.

Self-Management Resource

We also have video resources exploring different elements of self-management, including pain management, distraction techniques and pacing.
