Promotes Healthy Blood Flow
When individuals are inactive, blood does not flow through the body at the rate it should. Good blood flow is necessary to take healing nutrients to joints damaged by arthritis. The blood also needs to keep moving to draw toxins and impurities out of the joints so they may be removed by normal body functions. One way to get the blood moving freely is for individuals to engage in activities that increase their heart rate. Not only does the blood flow more quickly when the heart is beating faster, but cardiovascular exercise makes the heart stronger, allowing it to push a greater volume of blood with each heartbeat even while individuals are at rest.
