Mrs M’s arthritis was widespread in all of her joints and found that even the smallest of movements had become painful. She was feeling very down and negative when we met her.
The pain and restriction of movement meant Mrs M had given up her social activities and she tended to stay indoors and felt quite lonely as a result.
We taught Mrs M some simple exercises, gave her advice on pain control and relief as well as tips on how to manage day-to-day tasks safely.
Mrs M now is aware of how to manage her symptoms and has since returned to her social activities.
