In brief: Promote motion

Medications can help the symptoms of arthritis but there are many exercises that promote health of joints.
Joints are nourished by synovial fluid which requires motion to keep the cartilage surfaces healthy. Maintaining flexibility, warmth, and avoiding high impact or load is critical. When swelling is persistent, you should seek the evaluation of a rheumatologist or orthopedist.
