Kate Lorig, author of The Arthritis Helpbook, Como convivir con su artritis and Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Conditions, and her colleagues at Stanford University and The University of North Carolina have brought together an incredibly useful and integrated package of print and electronic media that will help anyone with arthritis, using tools from a proven program.
The Kit includes the basic building blocks for each individual to use in constructing a personal approach to the management of the disease through exercise, pain management, and relaxation. It encourages goal-setting, action-planning, proactive thinking and acting ahead.
Each Kit Contains These Resources:
- The Arthritis Helpbook by Kate Lorig and James Fries, leading experts on self-management
- Information Sheets briefly describing common problems and helpful solutions
- Self-Test that helps individuals identify the elements and set priorities for a personal self-management plan
- Action Plan description with instruction and examples for developing unique plan
- Exercise Action Plan with hints and instruction on use of the other exercise and activity materials
- Relaxation for Mind & Body CD and Exercises for Chronic Conditions CD
- All in one self-contained kit to which the individual can add their own materials
These are the elements that can help you design an individualized program to restore some degree of control over the effects of the disease on your body and activities. It is designed as a flexible set of elements that allows you, along with advice from a medical professional, to build out a program that is uniquely helpful and that can be modified and expanded to suit your own needs.
