Self-Management - Arthritis Action


What is Self-Management?

Self-management of arthritis, put simply, is managing your condition yourself using a variety of methods to address both the physical and mental impacts of arthritis. Arthritis affects people differently, so each individual can choose the techniques that help them live a fuller, more active life whilst living with the condition.

According to our recent YouGov study, involving 2,074 people with arthritis of working age in Great Britain, 64% found self-management to be useful.

We are the only UK charity that offers a holistic self-management service that can be tailored to suit each individual based on their condition, pain level, activity levels, eating habits and lifestyle.
