      Lower impact exercises are the best for people with achy joints simply because they‘re easier on your joints than higher impact varieties. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of options out there, so you’ll be able to find several that appeal to you.

      Range-of-Motion Exercises

      These help to increase your flexibility, relieve stiffness and maintain normal joint movement, and should be done daily.

      Yoga

      Dance

      Stretching  

      Stretching is particularly effective because it’s known to give your joints a better range of motion, may slow the degeneration of your joints, and it helps to relieve pain.  

      To learn how to do the right type of stretching - the kind that actually feel good while you do them (and after!) - purchase the Stretching Toward a Healthier Life DVD.  

      Stretching expert Jacques Gauthier and his wife Dorothee Lavoie present 15 stretches that stretch all the key muscles groups throughout your entire body, and it only takes about 15-20 minutes per day total to do the complete stretching routine.  

      Anyone who’s suffering from pain should make the stretches in this video a priority.
