Movement is the Key

Arthritis often creeps up slowly - an occasional twinge here and there.
First in the extremities - fingers and toes, then all the rest of the joints soon join in.
Some days are easier than others - the flare ups come when they want - no warning given.
Medication is available - using it only when it is really bad is the option that I prefer.
Years ago, exercise was not what doctors preferred to order - it hurt too much.
But it has been proven over the past few years, that movement for arthritis is the key.
Even if it hurts - which it does.
"Use it or loose it" has always been my motto - and it applies here too.
