Arthritis and relationships


Arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions affect not only the person suffering – it can also have significant impact on the lives of family members and care givers.

Here Linda Martin gives us advice on how to manage relationships, emphasising it is important to recognise how the condition will change your life and how to manage the changes.

Organisations such as Arthritis and Osteoporosis Victoria have many resources, including phone counselling that can provide additional support to those suffering.

    With all the research I have conducted I find that the food we eat, our lifestyle and stress levels
    have a huge impact on arthritis. I know of cases where people were cured with a strict diet. I know experts want to argue this as being simplistic. As woman close to 70, fitness trainer & health coach for the 40+, I’m forever astonished about what people consider to be a healthy diet.
