Arthritis Water Exercise
Developing a regular exercise routine is extremely important when you have arthritis — it preserves strength and flexibility, and in people who are also overweight, physical activity can help shed pounds and reduce pain. Activities like walking and running can be too jarring on joints, but water therapy, is a great way to stay active while actually protecting joints.
“Being in the water ‘unweights’ your joints, which is really great for people who have a lot of pain,” says Patience White, MD, vice president of public health at the Arthritis Foundation and a professor of medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. People with either osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can benefit, she adds.
