A good amount of exercise can help reduce inflammation, the process responsible for the destruction of osteoarthritic joints.
Phil Evans, Principal Physiotherapist at Urban Body, who was also an Official Physiotherapist at the Commonwealth Games, said: “Movement gets the blood flowing which is our best and most natural form of anti-inflammatory.”
For patients with osteoarthritis, he recommends walking and several other activities.
“Walking is the easiest and most convenient way to get healthy daily movement, but cycling and swimming are also great choices,” Evans said.
