Man­age your pain

“It is best to ex­er­cise when you have the least pain, stiff­ness and fa­tigue, and when your med­i­ca­tion is hav­ing max­i­mum ef­fect,” says Grainne O’Leary, head of ser­vice devel­op­ment with Arthri­tis Ire­land. “So plan your ex­er­cise pe­ri­ods and ac­tive times to co­in­cide with times when your nor­mal, daily reg­i­men of arthri­tis med­i­ca­tions are most ef­fec­tive at re­duc­ing pain.” and other hob­bies, which may not nec­es­sar­ily be thought of as ex­er­cise will also help.”
