Many people with arthritis think they can’t or shouldn’t exercise, but this just isn’t true. It has been proven that physical activity is an important part of managing your arthritis.

As well as reducing the pain and inflammation of arthritis, being active and exercising regularly improves joint support and lubrication, helps with weight control and has many other health benefits, including lowering blood pressure and stroke risk.
