We have developed a combination of exercises that will benefit people with painful osteoarthritis:
Neck & Back Exercises
These exercises help build strength within the spine and muscles. They also support arthritic joints and keep stress off of them.
These will help keep the lungs in shape while controlling weight. The most popular activities include walking, stationary cycling, and water aerobics.
These focus on keeping back joints limber, relieving stiffness, and helping to maintain normal joint motion. Bending forward, backward, or sideways is the most effective.
Stretching can relieve discomfort from the symptoms of osteoarthritis. It also increases the range of motion and help joint function.
Regular exercise not only helps osteoarthritis but offers other benefits as well. It improves the level of blood circulation, helps maintain the appropriate weight, improves sleeps, promotes endurance and improves overall well-being.
