Exercise is crucial to our continued health, especially as we get older. But if you have arthritis, pain and a limited range of motion can keep you from taking part in regular exercise classes. That’s why Clark Memorial Hospital’s Center for Orthopedics and Neurology is offering exercise classes designed for those with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. Free for our gym members and $5 each class for non-members.
