Physical activity engagement in early rheumatoid arthritis: a qualitative study to inform intervention development (2015)
Journal Article
Cramp, F., Walsh, N. E., Haase, A. M., Withall, J., Haase, A., Walsh, N., …Cramp, F. (. (2016). Physical activity engagement in early rheumatoid arthritis: a qualitative study to inform intervention development. Physiotherapy, 102(3), 264-271. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.physio.2015.07.002

© 2015 Chartered Society of Physiotherapy Background Physical activity (PA) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is lower than in the general population. PA can improve physical function in RA, decrease chronic inflammation and reduce pain, wit...

Development of a physical activity programme for people with recently diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis (2015)
Journal Article
