In Reply to: RA and exercise-what's the best? posted by LJ on November 29, 2000 at 23:56:57:
: Hi-newly diagnosed. Doc says to stretch my joints often, but don't know what kind of exercise would be good for RA-anybody know about isometrics or stretching, walking or whatever with this condition? I just want to stay mobile when I can move without much pain! Thanks
:I don't know if it is the best, but I walk about 16 blocks daily or as often as possible. If my joints are swollen, I don't walk. I really think it has helped in many ways. I don't push it. I never try to overdo.
