In 2013 Arthritis Research UK calculated that one third of the UK population over the age of 45 had sought treatment for osteoarthritis. That’s roughly 8.75 million people - more than the population of New York.
As anyone living with osteoarthritis will tell you it is a painful, debilitating and, more often than not, invisible condition. It can affect both your physical and mental wellbeing. But it’s important to remember that you are not alone. There are millions of people like you and we want to cherish this community and bring people together.
The Flexisquad is our support network of real stories, expert advice, tips and shared experiences. In addition, there will be live events, initiatives and exclusive offers, each one aspiring to help you live better with arthritis and joint wear and tear.
On the 30th June 2018 NHS England announced it was considering stopping certain procedures it deemed ‘ineffective’, including knee arthroscopies for osteoarthritis. But rather than highlight the ‘ineffective’, we want to ensure our community is informed on all of the latest news, views, and insights shaping the future of osteoarthritis.
We certainly don’t have all of the answers, but we believe we can help manage arthritis better together. No one knows the condition better than those living with it. From the daily struggles to the determination not to let it define who they are and what they are capable of doing, we want to empower, educate and encourage those living with arthritis to lead a better and healthier life.
From interviews and commentary from the innovators and influencers within the fields of arthritis to everyday advice to help you live better with the condition, we are asking all those suffering from osteoarthritis or everyday wear and tear, to join our #flexisquad; our collective of people united by a desire to get moving.
