Exercise is one of the most important things you can do to maintain flexibility and decrease pain. The Arthritis Foundation recommends you do three types of exercise daily: stretching, resistance, and aerobic. While it may sound hard to get all three of these into your daily routine, making a few simple changes is easier than it sounds. Try this: Stretch in the morning for ten to fifteen minutes; walk for at least a half hour before dinner; and practice yoga or another gentle resistance exercise an hour or two before bedtime. This will keep you moving all day and give your joints and muscles less chance to stiffen. The morning stretch is absolutely the most important part of the routine, but you can change everything else until you find an exercise regimen that fits into your lifestyle.
Proper diet is another thing you can do to decrease instances of pain and increase your flexibility. Make sure you eat a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains and omega 3 fatty acids, and supplement your diet with a multivitamin. Research has shown that being overweight can greatly affect arthritis pain, so if you're overweight, it's important that you get your weight down and keep it there.
