Self-Management Resource

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, clinical appointments, exercise tips and pain management techniques whether or not they are having medical treatment.

      We offer our Members the opportunity to have clinical appointments 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.

      We will be joined by the British Association of Occupational Therapists to talk about occupational therapy. Occupational therapy provides practical support to empower people to overcome the barriers caused by medical conditions, ageing or accidents which prevent them from doing everyday tasks and activities that matter to them. This support increases people’s independence and satisfaction in all aspects of life.
