Our corporate partners
Our corporate partners play a vital role in supporting Arthritis Care to help more people with arthritis lead full and active lives. Find out more about how we are working with them.
Judi Rhys – Chief Executive of Arthritis Care: "We are delighted to be developing a partnership with AposTherapy® to support more people living with osteoarthritis. It is encouraging to see AposTherapy® taking osteoarthritis seriously and coming up with this innovative biomechanical intervention for people with lower limb arthritis”.
Arthritis Care is entering into a year long corporate partnership with AposTherapy® to raise funds to enable more people in the UK with arthritis be more active and relieve their pain. The partnership (which comprises a number of other joint activities) will see Arthritis Care run its first lifestyle event called Living Well with Arthritis; a happier, healthier you. The event is free to attend for anyone affected by arthritis. The event will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Brooks Building on Saturday 10 September.
AposTherapy® is a drug-free, non-surgical treatment for people with knee, hip and lower back pain that aims to analyse and correct the way you move by changing the distribution of weight as you walk and train your muscles to adopt an optimal walking pattern. As part of the partnership AposTherapy® will help raise funds by making a donation to Arthritis Care for each new patient that starts treatment during the year long corporate partnership with Arthritis Care. AposTherapy® will also be providing educational talks around lower limb arthritis and self-help management techniques to better inform and empower people to take control of arthritis pain.
