Gentle exercise for arthritis relief
Great tips. This would apply to #10, Exercise. Tai Chi is one the best low-impact, moderate exercises you can do for all of the body's systems, including the immune system and reducing the inflammatory response. I have found that the eastern arts such as Tai Chi and Qigong provide a simple and quick way to maintain my health and energy levels as well as keeping me fit.
I experience a lot of pain in one of my hips...I have a femoroacetabular impingement, and associated bursitis and arthritis. It was becoming a major problem, and I was finding it painful to put any weight on the hip. I'm in my mid 30's. I've started swimming again and even though initially it made it worse, the effect after just a few weeks of regular freestyle has made all the difference. no pain, increased movement and range in the hip and most importantly, stronger gluteal muscles to support the area, as that's my best hope (surgery is not an option). Everyone, get moving!
