Athritis is a serious disease that causes pain, swelling and changes in the joints that limit movement. There are over 100 different forms of arthritis and rheumatic-related diseases which affect one in seven people. People of all ages can have arthritis, from young children to older adults.

PACE: People with Arthritis Can Exercise is an exercise program designed specifically for people with arthritis that uses gentle activities to help increase joint flexibility and range of motion an dto help maintain muscle strength. It also helps increase overall stamina.

Because there are many types of arthritis, two different levels of the program are available: basic and advanced. This program, however should not replace a therapeutic exercise individually prescribed by a therapist.

The following classes are available within the San Gabriel Valley:
Alhambra West San Gabriel Valley YMCA (818)576-0226
Duarte Duarte Senior Center (818)357-3513
