Self-management gives you the skills to manage your condition. It is crucial for your emotional and physical well-being. It is the foundation of Arthritis Care’s workshops and courses.
Managing your arthritis is hugely liberating. As well as benefiting your physical and mental health, it can help in all aspects of life: aiding relationships, reducing workplace stresses, or helping you get back into work, reducing social isolation, to name but a few.
Learning about your condition is the first step in self-management – in particular, how your condition affects you. This can help you to predict when you might experience symptoms, and to consider how to work around them.
Other areas of self management we can advise and help with are Treatments and therapies managing pain and healthy lifestyles
We believe that self management skills are key to living the life you want.
