Take the ACE Survey on Arthritis and Exercise!
Every little bit of exercise counts and it’s never too late to start

Engaging in exercise regularly can be a challenge. Time is limited, resources are difficult to access, or it is not clear which exercises are “best”.

For people who are initially diagnosed with arthritis, there is the added challenge of having to adapt one’s lifestyle to maintain health and well-being. Physical, psychological, and emotional barriers including pain, anxiety and doubt are often present. In most cases, exercise routines evolve as a result of the diagnoses and people are well supported in their exercise journey. While some people lack the guidance or support needed to continue or begin exercising.

To learn more about what we can do to support people living with arthritis in their exercise journey, Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) is launching the “ACE Survey on Exercise”. Your participation in this community-led research will help ACE better understand your exercise routine and preferences before and after your arthritis diagnosis and any barriers you have experienced when seeking guidance and support from health care providers. Your responses will help us develop tools and education programming to best support you on your journey with arthritis.

The Survey is open to people living with any form of arthritis and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your identity will not be known, your responses will be anonymous. The Survey results are stored in a secure database. The Survey deadline is March 31, 2022.
