Exercise and Arthritis
Many people with arthritis shy away from exercise because it’s too painful. However, proper exercise can be beneficial by helping you better maintain joint mobility. The key is to know which exercises are helpful. If you have arthritis:
**Try water exercises. This puts less weight on your joints. You could either swim laps or try water aerobics.
**Use a stationary bicycle. This takes pressure off your knees.
**Consider joining a basic yoga or tai chi class to increase strength and flexibility in your joints.
