Bazgha from Fort McMurray asks: My wife has rheumatoid arthritis; she has pain in her hand joints. What kind of exercise would you recommend to ease the pain and stop the condition from getting worse.
Exercise is good for the body and similarly, good for joints. Keeping muscles strong around joints may help reduce pain and will help maintain function. Weaker muscles may lead to more pain and less ability to do day to day activities. Of course, everyone should always listen to their bodies – whether or not they have arthritis – so as not to over do it. If it is starting to hurt too much, take a break.
