DW editor Carola Welt has been awarded the German League Against Rheumatism’s prestigious Herta Seebass Prize for her film on combating pain from arthritis/rheumatism with physical activity.
The report accompanies two people with rheumatoid arthritis who have managed to overcome their pain and reduce their medication with the help of sport and movement. This marks a new approach; until recently doctors advised rheumatic patients to avoid strenuous exercise. The film was broadcast in September 2012 on an edition of In Good Shape focusing on rheumatic diseases. You can see it again here.
