Arthritis Program

Arthritis Program

The Arthritis Program at Citizen’s HealthPlex follows recommendations from the Arthritis Foundation. Our program is designed for anyone that suffers from arthritis or fibromyalgia. This program will help decrease joint pain or stiffness and increase range of motion.

Education and Meeting Component

Program members receive e-mails that include general arthritis information, exercises to do at home, and program meeting information. The program includes meetings that feature guest speakers, arthritis information, support, and an opportunity to socialize.

Exercise Component

Our Arthritis-focused classes use warm water exercise to help alleviate joint pain and stiffness. These slower, easier movements will also help gradually increase your range of motion. The water lessens joint strain that is usually associated with land exercises.

Participating in this type of program can also increase overall well-being, assist in weight management, and increase energy levels. Arthritis Foundation certified instructors conduct all of our group Arthritis classes. Find the class schedule here.

Program Details

The e-mails and group meetings are offered to both HealthPlex members and non-members. However, the Arthritis exercise classes are only available to members.
