Hello, I have just joined this community. I have started 12 week programme. I am finding this programme very useful. I am doing a new programme every day. I have just completed activity no 3 on 3rd day. So far I am finding it easy. I am thinking of incorporating exe for knee and monthly challenge with activity prog. I am wondering if any one has followed similar programme. Thanks

    Move with Leon,

    This got me through lockdown and any time my arthritis flairs up I’m onto the I pad. I also go to an over 50’s chair exercise class meeting up it’s others my age who live with arthritis. Recently had a few sessions with the hand therapy team, and I learned how to make life easier. The stupidest of things, following her suggestions I ditched the bath towel, bought a toweling robe and half a dozen face flannels easier on hands less pain, stop pulling up trousers with fingers get hand into trousers and minimize pull told you they were stupid but works for me. I sleep in light hand thumb support an if I can’t sleep lie with my stress balls strengthening my grip hopefully. At moment I’m trying to up my exercise not easy but a walk in our local country park with my well trained dog and I get treated to lunch out in cafe only trouble dog would just go to cafe they feed the dogs biscuits.
