Rest is Important

Rest is Important

Though exercise and weight loss are important for treating your knee osteoarthritis, don’t forget to rest.  Rest is important for the muscles, and joints you have been working.  The goal is to prevent pain, not cause it.  So know when to say when.  Listen to your body and don’t be afraid to take a day or two off if something doesn’t feel right.  Strength must be built up gradually, not all at once.

And don’t forget arthritis knee braces can help ease your pain and keep you exercising!
