Tips on Osteoarthritis
Regular exercise involving low impact activities such as cycling and strength training are key to maintaining range of motion. Pain and loss of range of motion are clues to follow up with your rehabilitation specialist for a tune-up. Consider taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate supplement to relieve pain from osteoarthritis. Visit Arthritis Research UK for more information on supplements.
