Exercises or physical activities help in strengthening the muscles and joint stability, so that it can bear the pressures or load of the body, even though the degeneration has started. However, lack of adequate exercise and physical activity may lead to muscle weakness and wasting, less stability of joints and decreased ability to bear the load, hence resulting into physical disability.

Hence, the need for an arthritis patient is to remain active and perform routine exercises to maintain muscle strength and mobility. So consult your doctor or a physiotherapist for a regular exercise routine and don’t let your joints rust with age!
