If you suffer from arthritis in Conyers, you might wonder how active you should be without worrying about pain.
The fact is, pain connected to the joints in your hips and hands will only increase if you allow yourself to live a sedentary lifestyle.
That’s why our Chiropractors recommend staying active in ways that are easy to add to your every day routine, such as by taking short walks or joining a yoga class.
Along with walking, your doctor may recommend adding some type of strength training, balance therapy, or water based exercise to help reduce your pain and improve your body’s functioning.
Research offered by Harvard’s Medical School shows that bicycling or swimming is usually easier for Arthritis patients than other types of exercise. Being able to increase the range of motion around the affected joints, strengthen the surrounding muscles, and build up your overall endurance helps support optimal mobility.
Your Chiropractor can help develop a custom routine that aligns with your specific needs, as well as addresses the type of pain you suffer from.
