10 Simple Ways to Manage Arthritis

Go for a Walk

Walking is an ideal exercise for many people with arthritis, according to the Arthritis Foundation. “It burns calories, strengthens muscles, and builds denser bones—all without jarring fragile joints,” says the organization’s website. Other good aerobic activities for people with arthritis are cycling and swimming. Gradually work up to 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least three times a week. Also, ask a physical therapist or personal trainer about strength training, which can make your joints stronger and suppler.
