Aerobic exercise can help reduce knee pain from arthritis, with specific exercises best suited to reducing pain and not causing additional damage.

Doctors recommend low impact aerobic exercises that don't pressure the shoulder joint too much, such as jogging or pool therapy, for pain from shoulder arthritis.

Physician approved exercise is an important part of arthritis pain treatment that can help stabilize and strengthen painful joints.

People with arthritis may benefit from hydrotherapy, such as pool exercise and physical therapy, as it takes pressure off joints and improves blood circulation.

Exercise can be as effective in reducing knee pain as over-the-counter medication, and can increase range of motion, foster healthy cartilage, and help lose weight.

One way to decrease knee arthritis pain is to strengthen the muscles around the knee joint. These exercises are designed to strengthen the hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, and calf muscles.


Knee Stretches

Stretching can help relieve knee pain caused by arthritis and other conditions, targeting the hamstrings, quadriceps, hip flexors, and calf muscles.

Common shoulder exercises for arthritis joint pain include shoulder stretches, strengthening routines, and low impact aerobic exercises.
