Next Sunday 29 October, the International Osteoarthritis Foundation (OAFI), Caminoterapia Foundation and the company Walkim are organizing an introductory workshop on Nordic walking at the Can Dragó Municipal Sports Centre in Bareclona, ​​in collaboration with the chain of sports clubs Eurofitness.

Physical activity

“Physical activity is a key part of preventing the progression of osteoarthritis. However, each patient must find the activity that suits them best. From the Foundation we want to encourage everyone who wants to take care of their joints, whether they are osteoarthritis patients or not, to lead a healthy life and practice some physical activity”, explained the President of OAFI, Dr. Josep Vergés.

For this reason, OAFI has signed a collaboration agreement with the Caminoterapia Foundation to work together on research projects to study the benefits of Nordic walking in osteoarthritis and implement training programs fof this modality for patients of the Foundation.
