    Half of all older adults will develop some form of arthritis in their lifetime. For this growing population, you can learn to alleviate the pain and stiffness associated with arthritis through proper exercises. Exercise and Arthritis, Seventh Edition, provides an understanding of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and spondyloarthropathy; the effect these conditions have on an individual’s well-being; and the role of exercise as part of a treatment program. 

    This course prepares you to recognize symptoms and flare-ups, understand various treatments and management strategies, and identify the psychological factors associated with rheumatic disease. You will also learn how to design safe exercise programs with respect to mode, intensity, duration, frequency, and progression.
