Welcome to Arthritis Action

Arthritis Action is dedicated to helping people with arthritis to enjoy a more active life with less pain. We offer healthy eating advice, hands-on physical therapies and help with pain management.  We help people whether or not they are having medical treatment.   See the benefits of membership or become a Member here.

      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.
