5. Strength Training Exercises
This type of exercise is good for strengthening the muscles that support the joints. This can help you to better absorb shock and prevent injury to your joints. If you plan on adding strength training to your arthritis exercise program, it’s best to start with gentle range of motion exercises before proceeding to strength building exercises. Start slowly with low resistance and gradually work your way up to higher resistance which will help you tone and build muscle.
An arthritis exercise program using any of these approaches can help you maintain joint flexibility. Try it! It might be just what the doctor ordered!
