Arthritis pain can be quite defeating, but it can be overcome. When considering an arthritis exercise program, one has to understand your limitations and what level of exercise is likely to give you results. Exercise increases strength and flexibility, reduces joint pain, and helps combat fatigue in arthritis patients. But when you are fidgeting with stiff and painful joints, the thought of  walking or swimming a few laps might bog you down.

But one needs to understand that you dont need to run a marathon, or be a Micheal Phelps in the swimming pool! Even moderate exercise can ease your pain and help you maintain a healthy weight. When arthritis threatens to immobilize you, exercise keeps you moving.


“A person suffering from Knee Osteo Arthritis needs to keep fit and try and avoid aggravation of the Arthritis,” informs Healthmeup.com expert, Dr Dilip Nadkarni, Orthopedic surgeon, Mumbai . Osteoarthritis is basically wear and tear of the knee joint surface. The knee often becomes painful, stiff and the person can develop a limp. To cope with Osteoarthritis (OA), Dr Nadkarni gives us the 3 S formula.
