Do you desire to stay active, but your joints cannot seem to keep up with the stresses applied to them with higher impact exercises such as jogging and lifting weights? Well, a great way to continue to stay active throughout the entirety of your life is to practice low-impact activities.

What Is a Low-impact Activity?

Low-impact activities are those that put less pressure on your joints. Many people think that since they have joint pain or problems, they cannot exercise, which is false. You can participate in many activities that help you stay active while avoiding unnecessary pressure and impact on your joints.

These Types of Activities Can Include:

•  Walking

•  Water Aerobics  

•  Water Jogging  

•  Swimming  

•  Bicycling

•  Yoga

•  Bodyweight Exercises  

Reasons to Try Low-impact Activities:

•  Arthritis  

•  Exercise Beginner

•  Joint Pain

•  Increased Soreness  

•  Pregnant  

•  Stress Fractures  

A great way to ease into exercising is to have someone lead you through a session. At Comprehensive Physical Therapy, we have Physical Therapists who can adjust to your individual needs to help you get back to activities you enjoy.
