Exercising Can Help Reduce Pain of Osteoarthritis

Are you one of 31 million adults living with the degenerative joint condition osteoarthritis? If so, you know that your condition often leaves you in pain that limits your movements and keeps you from living the active lifestyle you want. But, did you know that exercising can also help relieve your joint pain and strengthen muscles supporting arthritic joints? Here are some exercises recommended by Dr. Johnson for individuals living with osteoarthritis.

Dr. Johnson also offers fat stem cell therapy to help reduce the painful symptoms of osteoarthritis and improve your quality of life.

What Is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint condition that develops when the cartilage that cushions the bones in the joints breaks down. Osteoarthritis usually affects older people but can strike at any age. Other causes of the condition include overuse of joints from repetitive motion and injuries.

Before You Begin

Before you begin these suggested exercises, make sure you are cleared by your physician to work out. Some individuals take pain relievers and/or anti-inflammatories before they work out to help ease any pain. Using heat packs or ice packs after working out can also help to reduce pain and inflammation.

Best Exercises for Osteoarthritis

Strength-Building Exercises. Strength-building exercises are essential for those living with osteoarthritis because a strong body can help support and reduce stress on arthritic joints. Use resistance equipment such as light free weights, resistance bands and weight machines to help build strength.

Exercises to Increase Range of Motion. Range-of-motion exercises help to keep your body loose and limber, which means an improved range of motion for you. These exercises include things like stretching and yoga to help to stretch the muscles and make you more flexible.

Low-Impact Exercises. While working out has its benefits for people living with osteoarthritis, the last thing you want to do is further damage already-damaged joints. Keep your workout low impact and select activities such as swimming, water aerobics, walking and using a stationary bike.
