Series 3 Part 1: Intro to exercise for osteoarthritis of the shoulder

Exercise can be a helpful way to manage the symptoms of arthritis, but it is important to exercise caution when performing certain activities. Shoulder arthritis can be made worse by activities that include lifting heavy objects or raising the arms above the head. However, too much reduction in physical activity can be harmful, as it is important to maintain strength and range of motion in joints affected by arthritis. Regular exercise of the shoulder muscles can help reduce pain, promote healthy cartilage, and increase range of motion and function.
