Current evidence demonstrates that engaging in aerobic and resistance exercise (i.e. structured physical activity) can significantly improve patient-reported and clinical index-assessed outcomes in RA. In addition to this, engagement in exercise programmes improves, in a dose-dependent manner, th...

OBJECTIVE Vigorous cardio-respiratory training (vCRT) in patients with axial Spondyloarthritis (axSpA) is effective, safe and feasible, however not yet adopted in axSpA exercise programmes. We therefore aimed to explore the barriers and facilitators for vCRT among patients, physiotherapists (PTs) and rheumatologists. METHODS "Stakeholder-specific surveys examined perceptions of barriers and facilitators to vCRT organized under categories identified by Grol & Wensing. Respondents chose the 3 most...

Regular physical activity (PA) is increasingly promoted for people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases as well as the general population. We evaluated if the public health recommendations for PA are applicable for people with inflammatory arthritis (iA; Rheumatoid Arthritis and Spondyloarthritis) and osteoarthritis (hip/knee OA) in order to develop evidence-based recommendations for advice and guidance on PA in clinical practice. The EULAR standardised operating procedures for the develo...

Falls, due to its often severe medical consequences and persistent mobility impairments, together with the demographic development, are one of the most important musculo-sceletal problems and public health issue. Falls are often due to a combination of internal risk factors (such as vertigo, osteoporosis, cognitive ...
