Voltaren Partners with Fitness Instructor and TV Personality Amanda Kloots to Help Caregivers Discover the Joy of Movement
Leader in joint pain relief stands with caregivers help recognize their value and provide pain relief and movement resources.
WARREN, N.J., May 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 53 million Americans provide care to family members or loved ones,1 but an overwhelming 4 out of 5 Americans say that pain has affected their caregiving abilities.2 Caregivers dedicate so much time and energy – both emotionally and physically – to taking care of others, and the day-to-day realities of caregiving can involve a lot of physical labor and heavy lifting that may lead to aches and pains. In effort to help caregivers combat pain, Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is partnering with fitness instructor and TV personality Amanda Kloots to create a series of exercises designed specifically to help caregivers alleviate pain and discover the joy of movement.
As part of the initiative, Amanda is creating a series of three thoughtfully designed workout routines that target and strengthen different areas of the body that are susceptible to pain when caregiving, like legs and arms. Presented in bite-sized, snackable formats on Instagram Reels, the exercises are custom created to fit the needs of caregivers and can be incorporated easily into their daily routines.
"Caregivers do so much for others, and it's important to celebrate them and encourage them to give back to themselves through movement," Amanda Kloots said. "I'm excited to be working with Voltaren to develop these exercise routines. All of the moves will not only be effective at keeping them moving strongly and safety, but they are also super easy to incorporate into a caregiver's busy daily routine."
"The physical demands of caregiving tend to go overlooked, when in reality caregiving requires a wide range of physical movements that can bring on joint pain," said Stacey Harris, Vice President of Marketing, Pain at Haleon. "As a trusted, world leader in pain relief, Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is dedicated to helping people with arthritis, and is proud to support the 53 million unpaid caregivers1 in the U.S."
Voltaren is on a mission to help unpaid family caregivers recognize their own value, leading to a renewed journey of physical health. In addition to their partnership with Amanda, Voltaren conducted a series of intimate interviews with caregivers using cutting edge neuro-technology to explore how they perceive their value. During the interview, the caregivers wore an EEG headset that mapped their brain responses, measuring wellbeing based on brain wave changes in levels of stress, relaxation, excitement, engagement and attention. Results of these interviews and brain scans found that caregivers experienced a 36% increase in their wellbeing after hearing from their loved ones about their value as a caregiver.*
