An Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program will be held from 10-11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Ashe County Senior Center in West Jefferson beginning on Sept. 3, and continuing through Oct. 31.
The Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program is an exercise program designed specifically for people with arthritis that uses gentle activities to help increase joint flexibility and range of motion; and, help maintain muscle strength.
Different classes are available to fit your fitness level – with exercises done while sitting, standing or on the floor. The exercises you learn in the program, however, should not replace therapeutic exercises prescribed for you by a therapist.
Participants previously enrolled in the program have experienced such benefits as increased functional ability, increased self-care behaviors, decreased pain and decreased depression.
For more information or to register call the Senior Center at 336-246-2461.
