Movement and exercise for osteoarthritis
Physical activity, movement and exercise to help osteoarthritis and joint and muscle pain.
Last week I caught up with colleagues at a conference in Nottingham. Listening to a group of world-leading scientists and updating the latest research and strategies in sport exercise medicine and muscle and joint health.
The conference was hosted by the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis.
The Centre was celebrating 10 years of fantastic work & international collaboration. There has been incredible outputs to grow the evidence base for movement interventions.
And the message is loud and clear science is showing us physical activity, movement and exercise helps osteoarthritis and joint and muscle pain.
I found the presentations on using online strategies and technology to empower people to take charge of their pain exciting. The studies are rolling out and I am sure this will change the face of healthcare. Particularly in musculoskeletal health, neck, back, shoulder, hip pain and more.
I love the philosophy of ‘Follow your own inner compass and dance to your own beat!’. This is exactly what I have done, in championing movement in joint and muscle health and wellness.
Much of my research including my PhD with the University of Southampton was in collaboration with the Centre for Sport, Exercise and Osteoarthritis Research Versus Arthritis.
So it was a wonderful meet up in Nottingham. To absorb the excitement in how movement can help people live their best life.
This is what I concentrate on now - helping people with ongoing pain find #healthymovement.
We can do this on The Healthy Movement Programme at The Movement Works.
