Physical Activity; A Great Pain Reliever for Arthritis
- on June 4, 2012
Do you have Arthritis? Join the other 50 million people in the United States who have one of the many forms of Arthritis.
It is important for those with Arthritis to know that exercise is a safe and effective pain reliever and self-management tool. Talk with your health care professional to determine what exercise is right for you.
Generally speaking, at least thirty minutes per day of exercise is the goal for a person with Arthritis. If that amount of exercise time sounds daunting in the beginning, the exercise can be broken down into smaller pieces – like walking for 10 minutes at a time, three times per day. Being physically active may help you feel more in control of your life – physical activity can be walking, swimming, biking, dancing, gardening or washing your car.
Spring has sprung! Take advantage of this time of year to develop an exercise plan. Physical Activity is the Arthritis pain reliever!
