Welcome to ENACT’s Resource Corner!

ENACT has compiled a comprehensive, evidence-based list of local and national programs and resources for people with arthritis or other rheumatic conditions, rehabilitation professionals,  and researchers and future researchers.  Below you will find resources built by ENACT as well as expert information from national organizations.  Check back with us as ENACT continues to build this resource area and follow ENACT on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.

Arthritis Information:

This section contains an overview of the impact of arthritis in the US today on participation in daily tasks, including employment, and the benefits of physical activity.  You will also find a glossary of useful terms to help you make sense of the information available and to help you communicate with your medical team.

Tools for People with Arthritis:

Physical activity can be your best tool for taking control of your arthritis!  In this section you’ll find information about arthritis and links to websites by the Arthritis Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control, and other groups outlining why and how people with arthritis can benefit from activity. Easy-to-access recordings in our “Active Living with Arthritis” Podcast Series contain useful information for incorporating activity into daily life.  Because work is an important part of our daily lives, ENACT has also developed a special section on work retention.
