Pain cutting your workout short? Try these low-impact exercises

Posted 25 Sep, 2017 [ssba]

From old tennis injuries to rheumatoid arthritis, if joint pain is affecting your exercise routine, it’s time to adapt. We all have our favourite types of exercise, but sometimes our bodies don’t want to play ball. If you need something a little kinder of the joints, try one of these low-impact activities.

Aqua jogging is the favoured injury rehabilitation of many endurance athletes because it has many of the benefits of running – including the same movement patterns – without the joint impact that comes from striking the pavement. The flotation belt can feel unsettling at first but it is worth persevering. Water provides far greater resistance to movement than air, making this exercise ideal for improving cardiovascular fitness and keeping muscle tone. If you find it boring, then a waterproof MP3 player is a handy option. Plus, if you fancy a swim or Jacuzzi afterwards, you do not have far to travel.
