Exercise Recommendations for Psoriatic Arthritis

How can this event help me?

Psoriatic Arthritis cannot only limit joint function but also impact overall wellbeing. Physical activity is a cornerstone of managing Psoriatic Arthritis effectively, and this session aims to demystify how and why exercise can be used as a therapeutic tool. Join our expert Exercise Physiologists for a focused online session on integrating exercise into the management of Psoriatic Arthritis. This webinar is dedicated to offering specific, evidence-based advice that will help you understand and utilise physical activity to improve your condition effectively.

 

In our upcoming Lifestyle Event on Wednesday May 28th, Exercise Physiologists Tom Podbury and Sarah Comensoli will aim to cover:

 

  • Exercise Safety and Psoriatic Arthritis: Guidelines on how to exercise safely during flare-ups and periods of remission to avoid exacerbating symptoms. Recommendations for starting exercise safely will also be discussed.
  • Strength Training Benefits: Specific benefits of strength training for joint support and muscle function, including examples of low-impact exercises that are effective and safe.
  • Cardiovascular Health and Aerobic Fitness: How aerobic exercises can be adapted for individuals with Psoriatic Arthritis, aiming to improve heart health and increase stamina without stressing the joints.
  • Flexibility and Mobility Exercises: Importance of maintaining joint flexibility and mobility through targeted exercises, and how these can alleviate pain and improve daily functioning.
  • Developing a Personalised Exercise Plan: Strategies for creating a sustainable and personalised exercise regimen that accommodates the unique aspects of Psoriatic Arthritis, with tips for regular adjustments based on symptom severity.

 

This webinar is invaluable for anyone with Psoriatic Arthritis, from those newly diagnosed to those who have been managing their condition for years, as well as caregivers looking for effective support strategies. Our Exercise Physiologists are committed to helping you understand the critical role of exercise in managing Psoriatic Arthritis and guiding you through how to establish a routine that enhances your quality of life.
