Living with arthritis makes moving your joints painful and difficult. The less you move your joints, the more your joints deteriorate, making it even more difficult and painful to move. This is why effective and comfortable exercise techniques are imperative when you have arthritis. If you want to reduce your arthritis pain, consider trying these low-impact exercises.
One reason arthritis is frustrating is that it affects your mobility, so you may not be able to bend, twist or move as well. This reduced movement means you don’t use your muscles as much, so they shrink, further impacting your joint mobility. For this reason, stretching is especially important for anyone with arthritis or another mobility complication.
