Summary of session
Tuesday 11 May
11.30 – 12.30
Arthritis Action is the only UK charity giving hands-on, practical help to improve the quality of life of people affected by arthritis. We offer an integrated self-management approach, which looks at both the physical and mental health impact of living with arthritis. We support people living with musculoskeletal conditions through healthy eating advice, mental health resources, pain management techniques, local Groups, and exercise advice and resources. Since April when the first lockdown began we moved all of our services online and have been running the groups using zoom, these have been a huge success.
