Arthritis Prevention

A body in Motion Must Stay in Motion

It’s not just a law of physics — it’s true about your health as well. No matter your age, staying active is one of the most important things you can do to keep your body healthy. Exercise is essential, whether you are trying to prevent arthritis or want to keep existing arthritis from getting worse.

Daily exercise helps keep your joints working properly. Strengthening the surrounding muscles not only helps support the joints, it also transports nutrients to and waste products from the cartilage — the material that protects and cushions the ends of the bones.
