Did you know our Exercise Physiologists can prescribe exercise to help with arthritic conditions?
Physical activity is important for managing a variety of arthritis conditions. Exercise has been shown to improve joint mobility and flexibility, muscular strength and balance as well as decrease fatigue, pain and inflammation. The weight of available evidence suggests that regular structured exercise under the supervision of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist is one of the most effective forms of treatment for arthritis.
The form of exercise most beneficial for management of arthritis is gentle, low-impact dynamic exercise. This does not outline one single movement – choose an activity that you enjoy and is most comfortable.
