Exercise can be divided into three types which will play a role in reducing the pain and disability associated with arthritis.
Cardiorespiratory or aerobic conditioning. This involves using the large muscles of the body in repetitive, rhythmic movements and results in improved heart, lung and muscle function. It’s also good for controlling your weight and has been shown to improve mood by promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s "feel-good" hormones.
