Living well with arthritis
Having arthritis doesn't mean you have to miss out on doing the things you love. These pages provide resources and information on how to manage and live well with arthritis.
Rural Health Program Appeal
Please help people in rural NSW gain better access to heath information. The shortage of health services in rural NSW is well known to people who live with arthritis. The lack of support can delay diagnosis and treatment, impacting people’s financial, social and physical wellbeing. You can help.
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.
Strength & Balance Classes
The program is designed to help individuals with arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions to develop strength, improve overall fitness and regain/build confidence in an environment that is social and supportive. Learn more...
Warm Water Classes
Warm Water Exercise classes are ideal for people with arthritis and related conditions. Our classes give participants the opportunity to exercise with guidance from a trained instructor.
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.
Camps for Kids
Our camps provide children and young people living with juvenile arthritis an opportunity to participate in fun and educational activities, in a safe and supportive environment, without fear of being different.
Becoming a member of Arthritis NSW is one of the best ways to engage with our organisation, built on understanding, support and community.
