Cardiovascular (Cardio) Activity
Promoting a healthy heart, stamina, and weight can help relieve symptoms of arthritis.
Low-impact exercises—such as walking, elliptical machines, or water aerobics—are easier on arthritis hip pain and arthritis knee pain.
20-30 minutes daily (If you’re inactive, start with 5-10 minutes and increase over time to help what causes arthritis pain).
2½ hours weekly of moderate exercise, or 75 minutes weekly of vigorous exercise.
Do as much as you can do. Even if you can’t fit in much cardio, the strengthening and stretching exercises can help with things like arthritis back pain.
