WebMD Presents: Arthritis - Therapy in Motion - Stretching
The Flexible Way to Go
These stretches are good to do even if you're not getting ready to work out.
"The purpose of stretching is basically to improve the range of motion in
your joints," Rubin says. You should stretch every day.
It's simple to begin stretching. There are books and videotapes that cover
many techniques. You can also order free brochures from The Arthritis
Foundation (www.arthritis.org). Just remember, stretching is one workout that
demands no pain, and offers great gain.
