If you suffer from arthritis, exercise should be a crucial part of your daily regime. Not only does exercise increase strength and flexibility, it reduces joint pain and combats fatigue. Although the thought of exercising with stiff joints can seem overwhelming, there are so many benefits.

You don’t have to be a triathlete or run miles and miles daily to reduce arthritis symptoms. Moderate exercise can ease your pain and help you maintain a healthy weight.

Exercise keeps you moving when arthritis threatens to immobilize you. With a safe and effective exercise program, you can improve your health and fitness without hurting your joints. Some of the many benefits of exercising with arthritis include:

• Strengthen the muscles around your joints

• Help you maintain bone strength

• Give you more energy to get through the day

• Make it easier to get a good night's sleep

• Help you control your weight

• Enhance your quality of life

• Improve your balance

Talk to your doctor about fitting exercise into your treatment plan.
