Exercise can help ease symptoms

(HealthDay News) -- Exercise can help improve many symptoms of osteoarthritis, a joint disease that causes pain and stiffness.

The Arthritis Foundation mentions these potential benefits of exercise to people with osteoarthritis:

  • Reduced stiffness and pain.
  • Stronger joints, better joint function and improved range of motion.
  • A possible slowing of arthritis progression.
  • Reduced risk of other chronic conditions, such as obesity or heart disease.

Before you begin any exercise regimen, discuss your plans with your doctor.
