Arthritis Therapy

mature couple exercisingDo you have stiffness, pain, swelling or reduced range of motion in your joints from arthritis? Many people avoid physical activity because of these symptoms, which can lead to muscle loss and weight gain.

Bryan LifePointe staff can help create a program for you that will include range-in-motion, strengthening and endurance to help relieve your symptoms and protect joints from further damage.

Make exercise part of your daily routine so that it becomes a lifetime habit. Regardless of the exercise program you select, it’s important to begin slowly and choose a program you enjoy so that you maintain it.

Aerobic activity examples include walking, swimming, low-impact aerobic dance, skiing, biking, and may even include daily activities like mowing, raking or playing golf.

Walking is one of the easiest aerobic exercise programs to begin because it requires no special skills or equipment other than a good pair of supportive walking shoes, and it’s less stressful on joints than running or jogging. Another good activity ideal for those with arthritis is our Warm Water Arthritis Therapy class.
