There are many types of arthritis which may affect your joint health and function. When you have arthritis, you may think that rest and medication are the only options for your pain. In fact, nothing could be farther from the truth. Your joints depend on movement for lubrication, nutrition, and healing. A specific program of appropriate exercise can be prescribed by your physiotherapist and can help you not only reduce your pain but improve your joint health, your fitness and your ability to get on with the activities you really enjoy.
