Arthritis Today—June 1, 2016
In the May/June issue of Arthritis Today, Susan M. Goodman, MD, a rheumatologist at Hospital for Special Surgery, provides advice she would share with a friend recently diagnosed with arthritis.
For example, Dr. Goodman mentions that staying active is essential but keeping in mind that, "I want people to do exercise that doesn’t involve a lot of impact on potentially damaged joints. Most people who have arthritis probably shouldn’t be runners." Dr. Goodman recommends that individuals living with arthritis should opt for low-impact exercises like bicycling and swimming.
Dr. Goodman also provides advice on healthy eating and good sleeping patterns.
