Our vision is for people to live active lives, free from the impact of arthritis.

Our Impact

Welcome to Arthritis Action

Arthritis Action is the only UK charity offering hands-on, practical help for people with arthritis to improve their quality of life whilst living with the condition. We offer our Members healthy eating advice, physical therapies, exercise tips and pain management techniques whether or not they are having medical treatment.

      We offer our Members the opportunity to have physical therapies with our network of healthcare professionals called Associated Practitioners (APs). These professionals are qualified as osteopaths, chartered physiotherapists, McTimoney chiropractors and acupuncturists.

      To find your nearest AP, just put in your postcode and the nearest practitioners (in a radius of 30 miles) will appear as flags on the map. Please click on the flags to find out more details about each practitioner. Alternatively, just click on the flags in your area of the country.
