PACEŽ (People with Arthritis Can Exercise)

A New Physical Activity Program is now available in Utah and Idaho!

For many years it was thought that people with arthritis and related conditions shouldn't exercise because it would damage their joints. Today, however, doctors and therapists know that moderate physical activity can improve your health without hurting your joints. With this in mind, the Arthritis Foundation introduced PACEŽ (People with Arthritis Can Exercise).

PACEŽ is an exercise program designed specifically for people with arthritis that uses gentle activities to help increase joint flexibility and range of motion and to help maintain muscle strength.

Click here for a list of PACEŽ program sites in your area or for more information on the PACEŽ program.
