Abstract: Getting up, moving, and stretching may seem like the last thing you want to do when your joints ache. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, causing stiffness and pain with walking, bending over, and doing everyday activities with your hands. Over time, joints may be damaged from arthritis, and an ongoing lack of exercise weakens the muscles that could otherwise help support the joints. Medications can help to relieve pain, but they do not help strengthen these areas around the joints.
