This is a patient-led online video education session. Fiona will share the exercises she does that have helped her with dermatomyositis. These are based on research, and more specifically on the Helene Alexanderson exercises (Functional Index 2), while others are based on Fiona’s personal experience (stretching).
By joining you will be able to ask questions and meet other myositis patients face-to-face.
