May is National Arthritis Awareness Month!
The Montana Arthritis Program offers funding to sites across the state to offer exercise programs that have been proven to decrease pain and improve flexibility and function for people living with arthritis.
This is what some participants from Helena had to say about how the Arthritis Foundation Exercise Program has helped them:
"Since I have been coming to Cyndi’s class I have been able to do more than I used to. My hips were sore when I went to the left and right but now they don’t hurt. I have enjoyed their class very much." ~Gerri O’Leary
“These exercises have helped me to stretch the pain away, and to get better balance.” ~Ray Larson
“I have been coming to Cyndi’s class for over two years. I rely on them to maintain my strength and mobility. And also the social side is very interesting and inspiring.” ~Ruth Goins
