Arthritis – Facing the Facts (Guest Post)

Arthritis Facts – An Infographic

I would like to introduce Tricia, a registered nurse and health writer. Tricia offered to share the wonderful work she has done to provide the facts about Arthritis in a great infographic. As you can imagine, we are thrilled at the wealth of information Tricia is sharing, especially how important exercising and keeping weight down is as a treatment for Arthritis. As a sufferer, I swear by my weekly lateral elliptical exercises (see below if you are interested in shopping for one).

Please join us in welcoming Tricia and be sure to share with your family, friends and colleagues who suffer from this painful disease. Also, be sure to visit GeriatricNursing.org for other health issues.

For your considerations…

Search Amazon for Lateral Elliptical Equipment…

Or, try your gym…

If your local gym doesn’t have a lateral elliptical, ask them if they plan on purchasing one. If they know there is an interest, they may just buy it. The gliding movements do not jolt your joints and will definitely help everyone that uses it. The lateral doesn’t glide forward and backwards, but from side-to-side. I do side leg exercises daily, and visit the gym on Sundays for 35 minutes of training on my Octane Fitness Lateral. It’s one of the few aerobic equipment exercises I can do without causing my hip to hurt afterwards. Note:  there are many factors to be considered before starting or increasing your exercise routine. Be sure to consult with your doctor before beginning an exercise program to be sure it’s right for you.

Thank you so much for spending time with us today. Wishing you the best of health!

    1. Yes, I thought so too Cathi – and I was very grateful that Tricia contacted us! I think her work to explain the details was simple and informative. Thank you for visiting Cathi!

    1. Yes, it is difficult to watch someone you love in pain. I hope she has found ways to alleviate the aches. And I really do find the elliptical to be a wonderful exercise for my Hip Osteoarthritis. I don’t know if your better half has ever tried unsweetened Cherry juice, but that helps me too GP!

    1. I am happy that you found the right joint pain medicine for you Ayurspace. And thank you so much for visiting with us today – we hope you visit often and take advantage of our exercises pages too!
