The best exercise for someone with arthritis depends on several factors, including the type and severity of arthritis, any other health conditions, and personal preferences. However, generally speaking, low-impact exercises that don't put excessive stress on the joints are considered best for people with arthritis. Here are some examples:
Walking: Walking is a great low-impact exercise that can improve joint flexibility and strengthen the muscles around the joints. Walking can also help reduce the risk of developing other health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
Swimming: Swimming is a great option for people with arthritis, as it is low-impact and the buoyancy of the water can help support the joints while reducing pressure on them. Swimming can also help improve cardiovascular health, flexibility, and muscle strength.
Gentle Exercise classes: Gentle Exercise can help improve joint flexibility, balance, and posture, and may also help reduce stress and anxiety. However, it's important to choose classes or poses that are gentle on the joints and avoid any movements that cause pain or discomfort.
Strength training: Strength training exercises can help build muscle mass and support the joints, reducing the risk of injury and improving overall function. However, it's important to choose exercises that are low-impact and avoid any movements that cause pain or discomfort.
