Hi @sharonmay7. I found some information exercising with arthritis and tips to protect your joints ( Hopefully your husband finds some of these post-exercise tips helpful!

Has your husband tried swimming or water aerobics? According to the Arthritis Foundation, water aerobics “lessens the impact on joints by 75% compared to traditional aerobics.” (

I’m also tagging @blindeyepug, @excentrk and @riverqueen1305 – all members who have recently wrote about various exercises, including swimming, to help relieve joint pain.


Do you know anything about the use of hemp oil (without thc) to help inflammation and pain? I'm tired of taking pills and braids that don't work well and have side effects.
