If you are an arthritis sufferer, you may have a difficult time doing the very simplest of chores like going up and down stairs. Even getting out of bed can prove painful. When lifting objects, special care needs to be taken to lift things properly and with the least amount of strain.
In even the mildest cases of osteoarthritis, fatigue can be a major issue. It is a "double-whammy" when pain gets out of control. Moreover, we are not talking about someone who is constantly in pain. It can affect any of you who are simply having a bad day. (Even one day of bad pain can become excruciating.)
There are simple things that we do in everyday life just because we become accustomed to doing them. You walk with a little outward “swing” in your step. Or, you twist your arm slightly when picking up something off the ground. Is there anything wrong with your leg? Or how about that ‘habit’ of twisting your arm?

Osteoarthritis: Just how much exercise is enough?
By J. R. Rogers
Exercise is so critical to you if you suffer from osteoarthritis and it is a point I have driven home many times. If you are a regular reader of my arthritis columns, you know that. But, the question is “how much is enough?”
Just how much exercise do I need to deal with my arthritis?
I have been in the arthritis business a long time. And, I am the first to recommend a premium-quality liquid Glucosamine product first. It is safe and highly effective at getting pain under control and rebuilding damaged cartilage. Of course, a sensible diet (and weight management) as well as regular exercise is extremely important for osteoarthritis sufferers. So, how much is enough?
Every day activities
My reading(s) on this subject are extensive. So, the “short answer” is that “any exercise you do when you suffer from osteoarthritis” is a benefit. Of course, some of you suffer limitations so let’s talk about this.
Writers about exercise and osteoarthritis discuss the “amount of time” you spend exercising. I might agree with some of this and have said it in the past. But, think about these simple steps.
The “pros” out there run, play golf, tennis, ride bicycles, walk, and much more. But, you do not need to get that “active” to beat osteoarthritis. And that is especially so if you have some “physical limitations.” Let’s look at this information that I have found and I am calling it:
THE TWO RULES OF NINE (9)
2. And, how about this amazing statistic. If you walk at least nine (9) miles a week,
I have said it time and time again, get out and walk. Even if your osteoarthritis is giving you a little difficulty (and, do not push yourself) that walk is going to help in your fight against OA. Now, I am going out for a little stroll myself.
See you next time.

8 Tips to Control Arthritic Pain
These past months in The Arthritis Chronicle, I've talked about my Eight Day Arthritis Ecourse that I had written. I had originally intended to give this informational course away free for only one issue, but due to the tremendous response and good word of mouth this course has brought, I have decided to give it away at no charge.
This Arthritis Course is packed with quality information on what you should know before you talk to your doctor, the arthritis diagnosis, treatment options, treatment side effects, glucosamine, tips on proper diets and exercise, weight management, alternative options, and an easy to understand explanation of what exactly arthritis is, how it occurs, and the effect on cartilage including a discussion of chondrocytes, collagen, proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans, and synovial fluid.
If you are committed to taking the right steps towards effectively easing arthritis pain and knowing all your options, then this course will be extremely helpful to you.
The course is spread out over an eight day period and a new part of the course is sent each day right to your email inbox.
Once you begin your course above, you will receive one article each day delivered right to your email inbox. The daily topics are:
