Exercise & Arthritis

Modern living, with its armchair entertainment, sedentary office jobs and cars, does not encourage exercise. Finding the right sort of exercise will really help you to manage your arthritis. The more you do, the better you will feel, and could help your arthritis.

The NHS recommends that all adults, of all ages, should undertake a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise at least five days a week. If you feel that this is too much for you to do in one go initially, you may choose to break it down into blocks of just 5 to 10 minutes. The important thing is to set yourself realistic goals, to choose an exercise routine that suits you and your lifestyle, and to keep it up. This is what will guarantee success.
