Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects about two million Americans, both young and old. An ideal arthritis treatment plan is multifaceted, including pharmacological intervention and physical therapy. A physical therapist can help RA patients get moving safely and stay physically active for life.
As you’ll learn when you watch this video, exercise is essential for quality of life and overall health. RA patients in particular can benefit from exercises that build flexibility, strength, body awareness, and cardiovascular health. Some good exercise ideas include swimming, aquatic therapy, yoga, tai chi, and walking.
