Health Tip: Exercising With Arthritis

What experts recommend

(HealthDay News) -- Physical activity, an important part of arthritis management, can help improve pain and joint flexibility.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends these low-impact exercises that offer benefits without undue strain on the joints:

  • Aerobic exercises, including swimming, biking, water aerobics, dancing, walking at a fast pace, and gardening.
  • Exercises that strengthen the muscles, including calisthenics and weight training.
  • Exercises that help improve balance, including tai chi, walking backward and standing on one foot.
