Support, resources for younger people with Osteoarthritis
I am 37yo man and have been living with diagnosis of Osteoarthritis for the last 5 years. GP has given support for pain relief in terms of naproxen, paracetamol and codiene phosphate. I tried engaging with an NHS physio but beyond exercises they were able to direct me to any other support. I am overweight and this is a factor in the level of pain and also a variable on future care needs (i.e a hip replacement). Unfortunately though I haven’t been able to find anything to stick with that been able to help shift things. Jogging was my go to exercise abs strongly warned off that.
Anyway I would value a bit of peer support and to understand what other people around my age find effective and is there is anything out there tailored towards arthritis friendly exercise.
Thanks so much.
Welcome to the online community great to see you.
So you are 37years old and have osteoarthritis for the last 5 years and you have pain relief in the form of Naproxin Paracetamol and codeine phosphate.You didnt get on with Physio as they didnt help you in the way you would have liked so you have asked if any one knows of anything else to help.
Here is a link that might help as those that have tried it have found it fun and good
Also help with your weight loss
