Strength & Balance Online Exercise Class

What is Strength & Balance Exercise

According to best practice, people with arthritis should engage in land-based strength exercises at least twice a week. Despite common concerns that “exercise will make their arthritis worse” – with the right exercise and under appropriate supervision, Strength training is in fact known to be one of the most effective ways to maintain mobility, build and retain strength and manage arthritis.
