The time of day may matter
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Exercise can help ease the pain and discomfort of arthritis, but it may be easier to get active at certain times of day when your arthritis isn't flaring.
The American College of Rheumatology offers this advice:
- If you have stiffness in the morning, some range-of-motion exercises can help you get moving.
- If you struggle with fatigue and finding the energy to exercise, schedule short exercise sessions throughout your day, instead of one long spurt.
- If you have difficulty sleeping, don't exercise within two hours of bedtime.
- Perform gentle stretches and relaxation exercises before bed to help you relax.
