Think Strengthening for Your “Arthritis”
October 12, 2016
Today is World Arthritis Day!
Arthritis, and more specifically osteoarthritis, is sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common chronic condition of the joints. It occurs when the cartilage or cushion between joints break down leading to pain, stiffness and swelling. Recent research on arthritis of the hip, knee, neck and lower back demonstrates that exercises which improve strength are the most effective at reducing joint pain and instability.
Strengthening exercises usually involve repetitions and/or resistance with bands or weights.
We work closely with the Rheumatology Associates of Saskatoon and have helped many of their clients improve their quality of life and get back to doing the things that they love! If you have osteoarthritis and are looking to improve your quality of life call Craven SPORT services at 306-934-2011and we will be happy to help you regain your quality of life!
We are currently offering a program called Fit 4: Bone and Joint Health which is tailored to help people with oseoarthritis!
“All parts of the body which have a function, if used in moderation and exercised in labors in which each is accustomed, become thereby healthy, well developed and age more slowly, but if unused they become liable to disease, defective in growth and age quickly.” - Hippocrates
