Vigorous low-impact exercise is beneficial – for your joints, as well as for cardiovascular, pulmonary, and other systems in your body.
If you can't do vigorous exercise, try walking, tai chi and yoga.
If you're overweight then you need to diet. Drink concentrated tart cherry juice. it contains anthocyanins and bioflavonoids, which help support a healthy immune response for your joints.
Make sure you're getting your vit. D, omega-3 fatty acids from krill or high quality fish oil.
I would swear by yoga... just added it to my MS symptom management and swear in just a month I feel a difference. I use the Wii Fit, so progress is logged. When I first started, it showed me at Wii Fit age 54 (I am 43), I am now ranging from ages 31 to 36 (range is directly affected by factors such as diet and weather which can cause the MS symptoms to be problematic on any given day). But haven't been older then my real age in weeks!! Been using the Wii about 2 months now.
