Rural Health Program
FREE Seminar: Living Well with Arthritis

This will include current information on a comprehensive range of topics, including exercise, nutrition and pain management.
Get Moving! Exercise Series
It is extremely important to stay moving, fit and healthy for both our physical and mental health. Staying fit can significantly reduce the risk of developing or the progression of sedentary diseases, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and reduce development and/or severity of arthritis.
Get Moving! Plus Exercise Series
Get Moving! PLUS is an exercise library dedicated to promoting and improving the mobility and strength of joints and muscles that are affected by arthritis. These exercises are to get your joint ‘fit’ in a specific context, such as pre and/or post rehabilitation settings, severe arthritis and/or pain.
Arthritis NSW is here to help, support and empower people with arthritis and related conditions. We achieve this through the delivery of education programs and health services which focus on self management and gentle exercise, the Arthritis Infoline, provision of information resources, and publications.
Children & arthritis
Contrary to common belief, children and even young babies can be affected by arthritis. These pages contain resources and information to help you understand and manage your child's juvenile arthritis.
Becoming a member of Arthritis NSW is one of the best ways to engage with our organisation, built on understanding, support and community.
