We’re not suggesting you run a marathon but, if you have arthritis, exercise can really help your pain, mobility and joint strength.
If you have arthritis, you may be worried about whether exercise will make pain and stiffness worse or if it’ll harm your joints. But actually the reality is that muscles lose strength and joints become painful, stiff and unstable if they’re not exercised. Exercise can be really beneficial and won’t make arthritis worse as long as the right techniques are used.
Read our booklet on exercise and arthritis to find out about different techniques to use, how to manage pain and about exercising during flare-ups. We’ve got tips on exercises that work specifically for people with arthritis.
Please share the booklet with anyone you know who has arthritis.
