Pilates

Chair Pilates

Pilates can be a great tool for managing osteoarthritis knee pain. Pilates can increase flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. By including Pilates as part of your arthritis treatment you can lose weight while improving your overall sense of well-being. Studies have shown people with arthritis who perform Pilates had a better range of motion and less stiffness than people who did not include Pilates in their exercise routines.

Pilates can be a great benefit to arthritis suffers because it can strengthen the muscles supporting the knee joint. When combining Pilates with aerobic exercises you can establish a workout routine to lose weight and strengthen knee muscles while reducing knee pain.
