Why Weight Bearing Exercise is Important

Ever wondered why your doctor suggests weight-bearing exercise? It's not just about losing weight or getting fit – it's about keeping your bones strong and healthy. Weight-bearing exercises involve activities where your muscles and bones work against gravity, like walking, jogging, or dancing. For those dealing with arthritis, these exercises are a game-changer. They not only reduce joint pain but also improve balance, muscle strength, and overall well-being.

These exercises strengthen bones and make them denser, reducing the risk of fractures and conditions like osteoporosis. If arthritis has you thinking exercise is impossible, fear not. There are many doable exercises and tips on creating a personalized plan. It's not just about exercise – lifestyle tweaks, like an anti-inflammatory diet and good sleep, also play a role.

Dive into Dr. Marko's most recent contribution in Verywell Health to discover a simple guide to healthier bones and a happier life.
