Physical Activity. The Arthritis Pain Reliever.

Physical activity is a proven way to decrease arthritis pain. Exercise strengthens muscles and joints and helps reduce pain, fatigue and stiffness caused by arthritis.

Help us spread the word about the benefits of physical activity! Just 30 minutes a day, five days a week is all it takes to make a big impact. Not only does exercise relieve pain—it improves your mood, too! Click here for free resources and to learn more about Physical Activity. The Arthritis Pain Reliever.
