Join Kathy Packard from the Oaklawn Center on Aging to learn the art of Tai Chi, which has been proven to relieve stress, strengthen muscles and improve balance. Exercise or being active is essential for good health, and it is even more important for people with arthritis. Pain and stiffness of the joints tend to discourage and even limit people from exercising. However, without exercise, joints become stiffer and muscles weaker which will lead to further pain and stiffness. Exercise keeps bones, muscles, and joints healthy, thus improving flexibility and muscular strength. Exercise improves the circulation of blood and body fluids through muscles, tendons and joints. Better circulation will aid the healing process.
