The SARAH program is an evidence based, clinically tested, rheumatoid arthritis management program for individuals struggling with hand and wrist based rheumatoid arthritis.
With the assistance of your certified SARAH therapist (physiotherapist or occupational therapist), individuals progress through set levels of exercises to maintain and improve function. The program is conducted under the guidance of your hand therapist as part of your overall management program.
In the initial session, your SARAH certified therapist will work with you to identify goals for recovery and exercises which are both appropriate and challenging.
Treatment is specific and targeted to each individual and ensures exercises can be completed effectively and pain free.
Follow up sessions involve ensuring exercises are being completed effectively, progression is being tracked, exercises are being upgraded and most importantly, goals are being achieved.
Structured sessions helps individuals establish routines and increase success with rheumatoid arthritis management once the program is completed.
