Arthrosis is a joint disease that affects people’s mobility and quality of life. Although its appearance is primarily associated with old age, it can also develop in younger age groups. Despite seeming counterproductive, remaining mobile and exercise are the best treatments for arthritis.

Arthrosis explained in first person

Professionals and patients explain how you live with the disease
My advice for someone with osteoarthritis is to keep moving. Movement is your friend, to help avoid the pain caused by this condition.
Listen to what they tell you, because I didn’t do that at the start and really, it does help, and they tell you these things to help you. Everything that might seem silly, the exercises, the baths… it really does help.
