We are sorry you are having a tough time jesse-james - we do advise asking your GP or clinicians for information, as they really are the only ones who can advise you on what they think is best for your health in the long-run. If you are looking for exercise and stretches, we have a brand new Resources page on our reworked site: perhaps it might offer some relief.

Also depending on where you are based, our Associated Practitioners programme might offer you a physical therapist in your local area - to discuss your health with them and get some (up to 2 sessions/year) subsidised physical therapy

Wishing you all the best,

Despina, Arthritis Action Communications Officer
