Don’t take Arthritis While You’re in Bed

Historically, doctors rarely ever advised rheumatoid arthritis patients to exercise and be more active with their lifestyle. Arthritis was considered an inevitable part of aging and an indication to a patient that it’s time to settle down. This is simply not the case today. Numerous research and clinical findings reveal that there is a lot more to living for arthritis patients than the conventional recommendation of drug management and bed rest.
