Arthritis – Lifestyle Changes

November 25, 2021


Lifestyle modifications can be tailored specifically to the type of arthritis you have. In case of osteoarthritis, maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce pain and long-term disease progression. Stretches and muscle strengthening exercises are beneficial in protecting the joint and improve your overall quality of life. You may be referred to a physical therapist to assist with these type of exercise. If you are a smoker and have rheumatoid arthritis, it is important to quit smoking, as it can worsen your arthritis and decrease the effectiveness of the medication. In cases of gout, dietary modification plays an important role.
