Arthritis awareness programme

The seniors who joined the clubs feel stronger than before.

The Retreat Community Health Centre (RCHC)’s physiotherapy department hosted an arthritis awareness programme on Wednesday April 10. The chronic disease can be managed effectively with medication and exercise which helps with the stiffness, weakness, pain and overall function of the patients. At the programme patients had an interactive session where they were informed about arthritis and a specialist was on hand to discuss the condition. They played hopscotch, skipping rope, with hula hoops and other activities to show how effective exercise is.
