Helping people living with arthritis
Arthritis Support Leicestershire are a small registered charity based in Leicestershire, whose aim is to help people living with arthritis lead a fuller life by helping them to take control of their self-care management.
Adapted exercise is essential for people living with arthritis. We run hydrotherapy at Market Harborough, Pilates and Low-impact Workouts at Enderby, as well as Seated Exercise sessions at Scraptoft.
Although we do not give clinical advice, we can offer advice and support from a range of people with experience of living with various types of arthritis. We are only a phone call away.
We have meet ups at cafes in Sileby, Enderby and Leicester each month, where you can chat to others living with arthritis in your area. We also organise social events throughout the year.
Our workshops are designed to help you find coping strategies to make living with arthritis a little bit easier on a daily basis. Workshops are held throughout the year and is available as a booklet.
Our GP Referral instructors can help improve fitness and mobility through a range of adapted exercises. Our sessions are open to people of all abilities, including those with limited mobility. All exercises can be done seated or using chairs for support.
Qualified nutritionists and scientific research all indicate an anti-inflammatory diet or a Mediterranean diet is most beneficial to those living with arthritis. Our workshops and printed publications help to identify how to improve your diet and your condition.
We have developed a pain management workshop to help people living with arthritis. We cover pain prevention and pain relief on a mental and physical level. These techniques are in our Living with Arthritis booklet.
Qualified experts help us to improve our mindfulness and mental health through special workshops. Including meditation, body scans and self-care, these techniques are also found in our Living with Arthritis booklet.
Your donations will help up to support people living with arthritis in Leicestershire to increase their mobility, reduce the pain they experience, and improve their quality of life.
