Exercise to improve arthritis
Exercise is the best way to treat arthritis in the long term and a carefully planned physiotherapy exercise programme has few side effects. The right exercises will significantly help to decrease pain, improve flexibility and increase the muscle strength and support for arthritic joints. A well-rounded programme will also improve your movement patterns, balance, co-ordination and lift your mood. Our physios will also advise you on rest breaks, an important component of an arthritis exercise programme.
