Louis Van Amstel, Former Dancing With The Stars Professional, Joins "Making Your Move" Campaign To Raise Awareness Of Osteoarthritis

















DUBLIN, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy-nominated choreographer, nine-time Dancing with the Stars professional and creator of LaBlast dance fitness program Louis Van Amstel is not typically associated with painful joints. But now he is working with HealthyWomen and Endo Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Endo International plc (NASDAQ: ENDP) (TSX: ENL), to help raise awareness of osteoarthritis (OA), which his mother suffers from, and encourage others with the condition to take healthy steps toward joint pain relief.

The Making Your Move: Taking Healthy Steps Toward OA Joint Pain Relief campaign is designed to encourage people living with OA to get up and get active. Low impact exercise is known to be one of the best ways to help manage OA joint pain. Exercises that incorporate strengthening, aerobic conditioning and range-of-motion, can also help increase cardiovascular fitness and flexibility, maintain weight and improve mood. Dance, one form of exercise that combines these elements, can be a fun way to increase physical activity. Patients can learn more by visiting www.healthywomen.org.

"My mom suffers from osteoarthritis in her hands and fingers, but after working with a doctor to develop a simple dance routine, dance made a huge difference – she's not only exercising, she's having fun," said Van Amstel. "A lot of people are concerned that the twisting and turning associated with dance might aggravate their joint pain, but there are a lot of ways we can modify dance moves so that they can still enjoy all the benefits and fun of this form of exercise." Those suffering from OA joint pain should consult with their doctor before starting dance or any new exercise regimen.

OA can be a serious condition. It affects nearly 27 million Americans ages 25 or older. It occurs when cartilage around the joints and bones breaks and wears away, leading to joint pain, and may limit some daily activities. A combination of exercise, weight control, and medicine for some patients, can help to manage the symptoms of OA joint pain. It is important for a patient with OA to speak with their healthcare professional about all their treatment options, including exercise and medication.
