Tip of the Day

  [ 47 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ] • May 2, 2003

While you are exercising, there are some important tips you can use to make sure you have a safe, effective workout that benefits your arthritis and doesn’t make it worse.

* Don’t hurry. Exercise at a comfortable, steady pace that allows you to speak to someone without running out of breath. Exercising at this pace gives your muscles time to relax between each repetition.

* Breathe while you exercise. Don’t hold your breath. Exhale as you do the exercise, and inhale as you relax between repetitions. Counting out loud during the exercise will help you breathe deeply and regularly.

* Be alert for "warning signs." Stop exercising right away if you have chest tightness or severe shortness of breath or feel dizzy, faint or sick to your stomach. If these symptoms occur, contact your doctor immediately. If you develop muscle pain or a cramp, gently rub and stretch the muscle. When the pain is gone, continue exercising with slow, easy movements. You may need to change position or the way you are doing the exercise. A good general rule is to stop exercising if you start having sharp pain or more pain than usual. Pain is your warning signal that something is wrong.
