stiffness-jointMany individuals may find it challenging to engage in exercise when experiencing joint pain, inflammation, or stiffness. However, adhering to a consistent exercise program can play a crucial role in alleviating these symptoms. Regular exercise can effectively decrease joint stiffness and pain, enhance flexibility, boost endurance, strengthen muscles, promote better sleep, and maintain the health of bones and cartilage. As one ages, joints stiffen and muscles tighten gradually so it is very important to incorporate a daily stretching program, especially after the age of 50.

A physiotherapist can offer guidance in developing an exercise program tailored to your individual needs. This program typically consists of three main components:
● Range of Motion
● Strengthening Exercises
● Aerobic Exercises
