"Arthritis Rx: Exercises to Keep You Active and Pain Free"

We all know that exercise is good for us. It can lower blood pressure and reduce stress, yet, it can be hard to get off the couch. It’s especially hard for those who experience arthritic pain, and if there is a group of people who could use less stress, it’s those who experience chronic pain. Yoga is low impact exercise that can help build muscle, increase endurance and mobility, and, yes, even decrease the pain experienced with arthritis. In the DVD, “Arthritis Rx: Exercises to Keep You Active and Pain-Free,” viewers are shown yoga exercises created by Vijay Vad, MD, a sports medicine specialist. Though it’s targeted to people with arthritis, it can be of help to anybody. It shows people how to calm their joint pain while invigorating their mind and relieving their anxieties. It is a great DVD for anybody who needs to get moving and learn to stress less. It can be found in the A-DVD section of the library, call number 616.722062 Ar76.
