The Benefits of Self-Management

The most important benefit of self-management is that it works.

Research focusing on participants in the Arthritis Self-Management Program has shown that participating in the program can help transform participants from patients with a chronic disease to active disease managers, confident in their ability to manage pain, fatigue and other challenges that come with arthritis.

Specific proven benefits of the program include:

  • Improved overall health
  • Reduced pain
  • Reduced limitation in daily activity
  • Less frustration or worry about health matters
  • Increased confidence in their ability to manage their condition.

No one can take care of you the way you can. Studies of the Arthritis Self-Management Program found that that it increases your confidence in your ability to manage your condition. This confidence can make a positive difference in the way you live and take care of yourself.
