Talkin' Straight

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Lupus are a really big disease that can affect any part of the body.  You must eat vegetables and fruit to help your body. Gentle stretching and walking everyday is really important. Most importantly take your medicines every day even if you feel better. Keep taking them as the doctor said without stopping.

Rheumatoid arthritis hurts. It hurts sitting with friends, it hurts walking and it can hurt just resting. This is not good. Help your community by taking your tablets. Not just once or twice but everyday or as the doctor said. You want to be good again? Take these tablets everyday even when you feel better. If you don’t you will start to hurt again.

Getting Your Life Back


This video was developed in conjunction with the Dubbo and Coonamble Aboriginal Health Services and is focused on raising the awareness in the community of the support and treatment that is available for the debilitating impacts of musculoskeletal conditions in Aboriginal communities across Western NSW. 

Unaware that seeking help for what, in many cases are treatable ailments, a significant number of our fellow Australians continue to accept their symptoms as the unavoidable ‘aches and pains’ of life – leading to needless suffering and physical impairment.  The video features local Aboriginal people, in their own words, encouraging everyone, irrespective of age, to seek the help of their local healthcare providers and then to follow their treatment plan with the prescribed medications. 

Help us improve musculoskeletal health in Aboriginal communities.
