Arthritis: Improving with Exercise

Exercise can help deal with arthritis. “People with arthritis or medical conditions try to be more sedentary, because they are thinking about their pain. But it has to be the opposite, we want to lubricate those joints,” says Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute.

Brian Betancourt, Exercise Physiologist at Baptist Health South Florida, explains it is important to consult with your doctor, because you want to have an understanding of any conditions you have.
