Arthritis Excercise

IT’S NO SECRET OUR BODIES CHANGE AS WE AGE, EVEN WHERE WE CAN’T SEE, LIKE OUR BONES AND MUSCLES. EXERCISE IS CRUCIAL TO KEEPING OUR BONES AND MUSCLES HEALTHY, BUT TOO MUCH CAN HURT. AT AGE THIRTY, BONES BEGIN TO LOSE MINERALS LIKE CALCIUM, MAKING THEM FRAGILE. IN OUR FORTIES, WE BEGIN TO LOSE ACTUAL BONE TISSUE, BUT EXERCISE CAN SLOW OSTEOPOROSIS AND ARTHRIS. “IT’S IMPORTANT IN THOSE WHO HAVE ARTHRITIS OR THOSE WHO ARE TRYING TO PREVENT ARTHRITIS, TO CROSSTRAIN, TO GET INVOLVED IN A NUMBER OF OTHER SPORTS”. ORTHOPEDISTS SAY ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO START EXERCISING. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT EVEN PEOPLE IN THEIR FIFTIES AND OLDER CAN IMPROVE THEIR BONES AND MUSCLES.
