Severe joint pain can limit your ability to perform daily tasks and reduce your overall quality of life.

“If you have joint pain, strengthening exercises, if done correctly, can help to stabilize joints and decrease pain,” says Stanley Michael, M.D., of Southern Ocean Medical Center.

“Low-impact cardiovascular [aerobic] exercises, such as walking, swimming or cycling, help decrease the risk of joint injuries and progression of arthritis. In addition to strengthening and aerobic exercises, stretching exercises for increasing flexibility should make up the third element of a basic exercise program. Stretching can decrease pain in conditions such as tendinitis and decrease the risk of stress injuries by increasing flexibility and shock absorption by the muscles and joints.”
