 In these extraordinary times in which we are living, our mental health is just as important as our physical health especially for those of you who are waiting on hip or knee replacement surgery. So don’t forget to check-in on how you’re feeling and where possible share your concerns with others. 

Exercise is one of the most important treatments for people with osteoarthritis particularly those waiting on hip and knee replacement surgery. If your condition causes you pain and stiffness, you may think exercise will make your symptoms worse.  However, regular exercise that keeps you active, builds up muscle and strengthens the joints and usually helps to improve symptoms. Regular exercise is also good for losing weight, may improve your posture and relieves stress, all of which can ease your symptoms ️

This week we are celebrating the contribution of our incredible volunteers!   From our newest recruits to our regular supporters and of course our Trustees - you are all amazing! 😊 Here’s why Verdi chose to volunteer for BART:

“I’ve worked with BART since 2015.  My brother in law has had both a hip and knee replacement and I recognise the importance of continued research to improve the outcomes for hip and knee replacement patients.  As with most charities, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on their fundraising potential for 2020 so now more than ever we need to renew our efforts in securing funds to promote this important and valuable work.”

Check out the Fracture NI website for the Belfast Health and Social Care Fracture Department based at the Royal Victoria Hospital. The website is full of useful information and resources to help patients with broken bones. http://fractureni.com 

Our research would not be possible without the important donations we receive throughout the year. So please help us further our work by sending a donation today.
