In brief: Yes

We commonly tell our patients to focus on high repetition, low resistance type exercises.
Think stationary bike with no resistance, or repetitive exercises in a pool.... For a focused workout targeting a specific joint or extremity, talk to your primary care physician and consider a visit to physical therapy to get educated on long term activities which can keep your joints healthy.

In brief: Yes

Motion is lotion and many studies have shown how people with arthritis who exercise regularly have less pain than people with arthritis who don't exercsie.
Proper nutrition, the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids), and light exercise are all good. Make sure that you have stretched and limbered up before you work out. Have your doctor send you to rehab for a home exercise program.
