Arthritis is a painful stiffness or pain in the joints from inflammation. It is caused by the breakdown of the cartilage between the bones. People with arthritis experience pain and stiffness all day long in their body. Thankfully there are easy ways to help alleviate the pain.
Exercise can help alleviate the pain and stiffness you feel. While going for a run may seem like the last thing you want to do, it will actually reduce the pain, combat fatigue and keep you healthy. Additionally, exercise will help maintain bone strength and help you get through your day.
Keeping your muscles and the surrounding tissue strong is very important to maintain bone strength.
Your doctor or physical therapist can recommend exercises that are best for you depending on your individual situation. Some exercises or stretches may include, range of motion exercises, aerobic exercises, or strengthening exercises. At the end of the day, any type of movement will help relieve the pain from arthritis.
