You already know this that- there are many ways to exercise like:
Aerobics, yoga, swimming, climbing, cycling, jogging weight lifting etc and
they all have their own different benefits.
Other than physical changes like building muscles, losing fat,
exercise can also help you to boost your mood,
it also helps you to get proper sleep and
also manages your stress
Regular exercise is very important for
prevention as well as treatment of all forms of arthritis.
It strengthens the muscles responsible for protecting your joints.
It helps you from getting them stiff
Through regular exercise, your joints get good blood supply and
nutrients that are essential for your joints’ health and
repairing of any damaged tissue.
However, too much exercise-particularly anything that jars your knee, hips or other joints can lead directly to osteoarthritis.
Avoid these 6 most common mistakes while doing exercise if you are having arthritis….
1)Don’t start your exercise without proper warm-up.
2)Don’t over do any exercise beyond the physiologic limit of your joints.
3)Don’t do any exercise while your joint is having pain
except the one that your orthopaedic surgeon or
your physiotherapist has advised.
4)Don’t do long cardio exercise, it is known to damage your knee joints
if done regularly for long period of time.
5)Don’t do jumping exercises like rope jumping if you have knee joint problem.
6)Don’t do push ups if you have shoulder joint problem.
Now, the question arises- what to do?
You will get warm-up exercises and
mild to moderate body weight exercises
which are doable by regular people like you and me….
