Don't let Arthritis stop you from living.
There is simply nothing more frustrating that wanting to do something, knowing that you have the skills to do it, and yet still not being able to due to pain. Those hobbies that you love, that sport that gets your blood pumping or the physical activity that gives you clarity can all be outside of your grasp if you are dealing with the pain of arthritis.
Not only does it limit your mobility, but also it can seriously affect your mental health if it means taking away those activities that bring you pleasure within your day-to-day life. There is a way to alleviate those negative symptoms without having to increase any medicinal support that you rely on and it might be an alternative that is much simpler than you can imagine.
Aquatic Therapy can provide you with an enjoyable and yet non weight-bearing source of exercise that can help keep your joints limber. Physical therapy pools, home spas, or simple 'water walking' can help you maintain the flexibility and ease of movement necessary for you to live your live in the way that you chose. Water therapy will not repair damaged joints due to arthritis but it can help strengthen surrounding muscles and offer you a level of physical fitness that would not normally be possible by traditional methods.
Where jogging on unyielding pavement is not an option due to its joint punishing impact, jogging in water is. Most exercises that cause pain can be re-thought and altered to be done within the natural cushion of water. Gain strength, mobility, and the power to continue those activities that bring you pleasure by looking after your whole health. Aquatic therapy and its muscle strengthening benefits can help give you back the mobility that you've been missing and it's literally all just a splash away.
