At Bon Secours In Motion our trainers are committed to fighting arthritis – and kicks off 2010 with a new Arthritis Rehabilitation program.

  • Physician’s clearance is needed to participate
  • Two classes each week (1-2pm, Tuesdays and Thursdays) for eight weeks (16 sessions)
  • Cost: $5/class ($80 for 16 session, eight-week program)

Contact In Motion at Victory Y (952-1900) for registration and class information.

Arthritis Facts

  • Millions of Americans live with arthritis.
  • Physicians have identified almost one hundred specific arthritis conditions – though most references to the disease are either to osteoarthritis, or to rheumatoid arthritis, or to juvenile arthritis.
  • Osteoarthritis is caused by the breaking down of joint tissue where bones meet.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis is caused by inflammation of the connective tissues of the joints.
  • New research suggests there are links between heart disease and arthritis.

    Hello Raj and Vishan!

    Knee pain or knee arthritis can be caused or worsened by a variety of factors. Every condition is different. We suggest that you visit a primary care physician in your community who can examine your mother and your wife in person and offer a potential treatment option-whether that’s medication, physical therapy, or surgery.
