World Arthritis Day

Wednesday 12th October 2016 was World Arthritis Day. Amid news that Robbie Williams suffers from arthritis, Flexiseq wanted to help raise awareness of the day. Over the past year we’ve spoken to a number of people with arthritis and, despite their stiff joints, aches and pains, they never fail to inspire us. So here, in one neat and tidy place, are all of the quotes and images we put out on #WorldArthritisDay to celebrate those living in the face of arthritis.
