Arthritis Exercise Program

This group exercise program, developed by the Arthritis Foundation, can help safely make physical activity part of every day life. The low-impact physical activity is proven to reduce pain and decrease stiffness, and help improve functional ability, self-confidence, self-care, mobility, muscle strength and coordination. The six-week program meets two times a week for an hour and the routines include gentle range-of-motion exercises that are suitable for every fitness level.
