Exercising with Arthritis

Thursday, January 28 at 1:00 pm

Exercise may be the last thing on your mind when your joints are aching and stiff, but it may be just what you need. Studies show that regular exercise may help reduce joint pain and stiffness, increase mobility and muscle strength and improve your overall well-being. However, it's important to do the kinds of exercises that improve your condition and do not damage the joints or put extra strain on them.

On Thursday, January 28th at 1:00 pm, Joshua Hubert and David Campagna, Doctors of Physical Therapy from Physical Rehabilitation Services, will describe the types of exercises that can greatly benefit those who suffer with arthritis. Bring your questions and concerns for an answer session to follow their presentation. You may register for the program using our library website's Events calendar or by visiting or calling the Adult Services Reference Desk at 412-366-8100, extension 113.
