This video will serve as an invaluable aid for all healthcare professionals working with those who have been recently diagnosed as suffering from either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.
Here at last is an expert programme specifically devised to assist in countering both the movement restrictions and the deformities associated with these conditions. The featured self-help exercises can be easily taught and will be of real benefit to patients.

The exercises themselves are very clearly shown, being carried out under the direct Guidance of Carina Bailey, a leading Chartered Physiotherapist and Occupational Therapist. The coverage is comprehensive, addressing all areas of the body, and in every case the relevant techniques are shown for each joint featured.  
Contents include:
* STRETCHES for the most likely muscles to tighten at each of the joint regions.
* ACTIVE EXERCISES which will build up weak muscles and help to support the joints.
* ISOMETRIC EXERCISES   providing safe ways of allowing even painful joints to be
 exercised so as to    prevent muscle wasting.
* CORRECT POSTURES to benefit general ease of movement.

Shoulder girdle, wrist and hand, head and spine, hip, knee, ankle and foot.
