Arthritis Awareness Week 2014

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 by morethan

This week is National Arthritis Awareness Week (12th - 19th October).

Over at Arthritis Research UK they see the value in raising awareness of this disease. Their main goal is to take the pain away from people living with all forms of arthritis and helping them to remain active. Their theme this year is “Be A Pain Killer”. They’re encouraging people who have or has a loved one who has Arthritis to take their survey, in order to better understand the effects of arthritis on people’s lives.

Arthritis is a musculoskeletal disease, which can be very painful. The five main groups are; Inflammatory Arthritis, Degenerative or Mechanical Arthritis, Soft Tissue Musculoskeletal Pain, Back Pain and Connective Tissue Disease (CTD). There are many activities happening this week to celebrate Arthritis Awareness Week; so we encourage you to please get involved if you can.  More information on activities can be found here.

Here at More Than Mobility we do not want any disability to stop you from living independently or to disrupt your lifestyle. We therefore provide a wide range of disability and mobility products to suit your specific needs from mobility scooters, rise and recline chairs to a range of daily living aids all suitable for people with arthritis.

Kind regards

More Than Mobility
