• Arthritis: Find a Community-based Physical Activity Program

    Community Exercise Programs for People with Arthritis

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reviewed the evidence and identified several community-based physical activity programs shown to help people manage arthritis and related chronic conditions outside a therapeutic setting. The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) also supports the use of these programs as part of patient care.

    Choosing and Locating a Program

    Community-based physical activity programs are low-cost and widely available. They meet in convenient locations such as recreational facilities and community centers. Fees may vary by location. Talk to your physical therapist to find a program that's right for you and to see what programs are offered in your area.
