When joints hurt, muscles and connective tissues can become weak and stiff. This can increase the risk of falling or becoming injured from overuse. Exercise is an important way to keep the body working the way it should, particularly when a condition like arthritis is present. Pickleball allows players to move back and forth at their own pace, strengthening the muscles around their joints, such as the hips and knees, so it improves balance and agility that can easily become lost due to inactivity and arthritis.
