Arthritis and Joint Health
Some think exercise will aggravate joint pain and stiffness; however, a lack of exercise can actually make joints even more painful and stiff. Keeping your muscles and surrounding tissue strong is crucial to maintaining support for your bones. Not exercising weakens those supporting muscles, creating more stress on your joints. Exercise benefits people with arthritis and a limited range of motion. It increases strength and flexibility, helps combat fatigue, and reduces joint pain.
