Indoor Exercise Programme

This programme will help to reduce pain and stiffness and maintain or improve mobility, muscle strength and functional ability.

Two essential components to the programme will be included in every session:

  • Exercise — including range-of-motion and stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, balance and coordination activities, and endurance routines.
  • Relaxation Activities — introducing and practicing various stress management techniques which are helpful for stress and pain reduction

Programme Information:

Regular exercise is proven to be one of the most effective treatments for arthritis. It reduces pain, keeps joints moving, restores flexibility and strength and protects joints against further damage. However, only 30% of the 915,000 people in Ireland with arthritis get enough exercise as overcoming fears about exercise can be very difficult – especially when in pain.

To attend these classes, participants will have to be independently mobile and will be required to fill in a basic health screening form in advance of the class. This form is fully confidential and is completed by the participant.

Participants are not advised to attend these classes if they have the following:

  • Poor balance
  • Unable to follow commends clearly
  • People with active inflammation
