Blog: Arthritis Awareness Month

May is Arthritis Awareness Month. Did you know that arthritis affects one in five American adults? Inflammation, swelling, and stiffness turn their once-limber joints painful, causing immobility. What can we do about it? Physical activity improves arthritis pain, fatigue, function, and quality of life!
 
Exercise is considered the most effective non-drug treatment available for reducing pain. Activity recommendations for adults include 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity activity such as brisk walking, along with muscle-strengthening activity two days a week. But what if your walking is limited by arthritis pain? “Staying active” in the face of joint pain seems like an impossible task.
 
Offloading a painful joint and moving it repeatedly is an effective way to decrease arthritis pain. Using the LiteGait for body-weight supported walking can take some of the load off your arthritic knees or hips, allowing you to walk longer and accomplish your fitness goals.
 
As an added bonus, the muscle strengthening and repeated movement associated with walking actually helps to relieve the joint pain associated with arthritis. Start a “victorious cycle” of improvement: decrease your pain, so you can exercise more, so you have less pain. Now there’s a gift that keeps on giving!
