People with arthritis suffer from swelling of the joints and also they have excessive pains in the joints most of the time. While exercising in a regular basis can help them in maintaining a healthy body and mind but they need to be careful about what type of exercises they do.
When people suffer from this condition, their joint is already in a bad shape, and they need to be more careful about how they maintain it. High intensity exercises like running and jogging is not a possibility for them. They may end up straining the joints even more. However, light forms of exercises can have great benefits for people with arthritis.
In a scientific study, it showed that a group of patients who consistently indulged in any form of exercise found their condition only worsening most of the time. However, the best person to evaluate the condition is the patient themselves because if they feel that their joints are getting more pressurized due to the exercise then they would immediately need to stop it. Running for five minutes on a treadmill or a walk can be helpful but running and jogging are definitely not suited and advised to such people. If the joints on the legs like the knee and the toes are swollen and are excessively damaged, then the people should refrain from any form of exercise that involves the lower part of the body. One can always adjust their exercises according to their body needs. Also, take a doctor's advice before you start any new form of exercise.
