Moderating impact in your daily exercise

Don't over do it!

Reducing your weight can help Reduce Joint Pain, especially if you have osteoarthritis or osteoporosis. While exercising is important,  Overdoing it may possibly do more damage than good. Keep the lines of communication open with  your Dr and when you experience pressure or pain with your joints, certainly let him to or her know. You should start off slow before starting a challenging regimen. Certain exercises, like running and jogging, can put added strain on knees. Instead you can try Walking. Walking is a low-impact exercise which is easier on your joints. You can also substitute an elliptical machine when you can't get outside for whatever reason.  Bicycling and stationary cycling are both an exercise that is more gentle on your joints, as well as swimming, or water aerobics.
