Exercise helps to promote flexibility and bone density, both of which are extremely important to maintaining mobility with arthritis. Without exercise, you’re at a higher risk of hurting yourself, and you’ll find it more difficult to walk, climb stairs, cook, and even just be comfortable sitting and lying down. Flexibility, strength training and aerobic activity work in combination to help you stay healthier overall.
