Maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight causes stress on the joints especially in the knees and hips. This added stress leads to flare-ups of arthritis. This is in addition to the well-known health dangers of being overweight and the detrimental effects it has on your mood and energy levels. Speak with your doctor about a safe weight loss plan.
If you notice that you have pain, swelling, or stiffness around your joints, it is important that you see your doctor right away. This could be a sign of arthritis, and if that is the case, you want treatment to begin as soon as possible. Make sure, you also, ask your doctor what kind of arthritis it is. This will be helpful when getting the proper treatment!

In fact, there are products designed to help arthritis sufferers with just about any task you can think of.

Learn tai-chi. Tai-chi is a mind and body connective technique, that is also a form of light martial arts.
