Movement is one of the best ways to find arthritis pain relief.
If you have arthritis pain, stiffness or achiness, one of the hardest things to do is get moving.
But, experts agree movement can be very effective in relieving the pain. In fact, the Mayo Clinic calls exercise “crucial” for people suffering from arthritis.
The key is doing the right kind of movement–not too intense, not pushing yourself to your limit.
Instead, exercises for arthritis pain relief get your circulation going to help your joints get lubricated and tense muscles relax so that your range of motion is not so limiting and hurtful.
