I do a water aerobics class for arthritics. I also do yoga. You have to keep moving as much as possible to the joints moving at all. Walk as far as you can, then start adding another minute the next time, etc. My doctor told me it was imperative that I exercise. It has helped with the pain a lot and I'm more flexible and move better.
