Osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder plaguing people today. Symptoms include pain and stiffness in the joints, and the pain is worsened when weight or pressure is placed on the joints. PT Rob has a few tips for those suffering from osteoarthritis.
Regular exercise and activity is important to decrease pain and improve joint function. Aquatic exercise is a great option if land-based activity is too painful. Another option is walking each day. The exercise partnered with the fresh air and sunshine will give you relief in no time.
