Discussions that mention prednisone

Arthritis board

I too have arthritis in many parts of my body including my neck (not sure yet if its osteo or RA). I have been on prednisone, had cortisone injections (not in specific parts, just in general), on Relafin and had chiropractic treatment. I also started working out about three months ago, not because of the arthritis, but because I needed the exercise. Surprisingly, and it is a benefit I didn't expect, it has helped the arthritis in all parts of my body (I do both strength training and cardio). I mentioned it to my doctor and she did confirm that it has been documented to help. I am really amazed by the difference in how I feel.
