What aerobic activities can help with treating arthritis?

ANSWER

Examples of aerobic activities include walking, swimming, biking, and low-impact aerobic dance and may even include such daily activities as mowing the lawn, raking leaves, or playing golf. Walking is one of the easiest aerobic exercises to begin because it requires no special skills or equipment other than a good pair of supportive walking shoes, and it's less stressful on joints than running or jogging.
