is an important choice to make with any type of arthritis. People who suffer from arthritis and who engage in some form of regular exercise report less pain, have more energy, and sleep better than those who don’t exercise.
The best types of exercises are those that are called “non-weight-bearing.” These exercises, which include cycling, swimming and others, keep weight off the joints.
People with arthritis may have to consider adjustments to the living environment
such as adjusting furniture, raising a chair or toilet, and installation of handrails in the shower and other areas of the house.
Maintaining a healthy weight is a good preventative measure for arthritis, and is beneficial for anyone who suffers from arthritis, especially the degenerative form of arthritis known as osteoarthritis.
Eating enough fruits and vegetables and avoiding smoking or excessive alcohol use all can improve your general health and have a great impact on maintaining a healthy weight.
