Episode 4: living with arthritis and joint replacement

It was the most difficult thing I think I’ve ever done.

It’s our fourth episode of The Better Ageing Podcast, and this episode is quite a personal one as Jane shares her experience of living with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, which led her to have a knee replacement.

Whilst it may have been the most difficult thing Jane has undertaken, fast forward 10 years and she walks 5-10kms every day (limp-free after 30 years of a constant limp), and has just returned from a hiking trip in the Kimberley!

In this episode, Jason and Jane provide really practical advice for people living with arthritis and/or thinking about a joint replacement of the knee or hip. They discuss ways to manage arthritis, how to ‘prehabilitate’ before a joint replacement, things to expect following surgery, and how to get the best results from a joint replacement through proper rehabilitation. 

I hope you enjoy this episode, please share with those that you care for.

Thanks – Jonathan
