    Exercise can benefit a lot to people who are suffering from arthritis. In a study it was shown that approximately 53% of people who have arthritis problem do not exercise or go for a walk. Beyond exercise walking is suggested by doctors in arthritis problem. Walking strengthens muscles and joints by increase blood circulation in those parts. A person can create his own exercise program. Except walking there are many other exercises which can benefit in arthritis. Swimming or any other water exercise is also beneficial. Bicycling in slow motion builds endurance and decreases pain gradually.

      Exercise is definitely imperative when arthritis attacks.  THe quality of life changes a lot and when exercising becomes a habit….there is nothing better.

    I would hope any person would ask their doctor about this first.  Exercising and ignoring pain is not always a good idea.

    Combined diet and exercise best for knee conditions.. The combined diet and exercise group also showed reduced knee pain, better function, faster walking speed and better physical health-related quality of life, compared with the exercise-only group.

    Yoga is also very good for all kind of arthritis. If one take 20-30 deep breath in morning and increase it to 200 gradually, it can help to reduce pain.
