It is expected that appropriate evidence-based literature will be used to support.
Case Study
Mark Stumkat is a 32-year-old diagnosed with osteoarthritis (bilateral wrists and knees) and anxiety. Mark is an artist, renowned for large-scale recycled metal sculptures. He is engaged to David, a management consultant, and the couple plan to marry in 2022. David travels often for his work. The couple have two German Shepard’s, Lola and Max, who are very active. Mark and David’s families both live nearby, and the couple often host large family gatherings in their home.
Mark explains lately he is experiencing increasing pain and stiffness in his wrists and knees, which is impacting on his work. He is concerned that his chronic illness and levels of pain are having an impact on his family life. He is not sleeping well at night, explaining he is kept awake with worries about his work. He no longer has the energy to walk the dogs. Mark has been provided referrals to a physiotherapist, dietician, occupational therapist and has appointments for all within the next 4 weeks.
