Arthritis Consumer Experts is rolling out a new series of JointHealth™ workshops.

Over the next few weeks, we will be sharing a series of 5 joint exam videos with you.

Originally created for the ArthritisID PRO app, now you will be able to watch them from the JointHealth™ website.

Though specifically meant for physicians to use in their practice, arthritis consumers can also watch these videos so they know what to expect. Or, if you suspect you have arthritis, you can show the joint exams to your healthcare provider. Encourage your doctor to visit or download the free app to view the videos.

The joint exams are demonstrated in English by Dr. John Esdaile, Scientific Director at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada (ARC) and in French by Dr. Diane Lacaille, Research Scientist also at ARC.

The first video—Quick Joint Exam—is being released today

Watch your inbox for the joint exam videos as they each become available over the next month.

About the app
ArthritisID PRO is a free app for healthcare professionals, featuring the most current, evidence-based arthritis information to help detect, treat and manage arthritis. There is also a free companion app for consumers, called ArthritisID, designed to help patients live well with arthritis.

The apps were created in year two of the National Arthritis Awareness Program (NAAP). Co-led by Arthritis Consumer Experts and the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada, the NAAP is a Canadian-based national program to raise awareness about arthritis.
