Previous Next 5 of 6 Water exercise

Aquatic exercise is a smart choice if you're living with arthritis, as the added buoyancy of water takes the pressure off your bones, joints and muscles. Water also offers natural resistance, which can help strengthen your muscles. Water-based exercise options include swimming, walking in water and water aerobics.

If you're new to aquatic exercise, ask your doctor for skin care guidance before getting started. He or she may recommend simple steps before and after using the pool to help keep your skin healthy.
