Can I exercise even if I have rheumatoid arthritis?

Yes, there are some reasonably mild and joint-friendly exercises that do not make your arthritis worse.

Walking, swimming, and muscle strengthening exercises can be of benefit as they enhance the blood flow to joints and thus encourage healing. Also, endorphin that gets released while exercising can provide some pain relief.
