1. Plant-Based or Mediterranean Diet
Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, and moderate amounts of nuts, olive oil and fish to lose weight and reduce inflammation.
Walking, biking, aquatics, low-impact aerobics, and exercising on an anti-gravity treadmill (yes, we have one!), lets you increase activity and decrease pain.
3. Meditative Movement
Qigong, yoga, Pilates, and tai chi are easy on the joints and help improve range of motion, flexibility and balance. Plus, they can help you stress less and sleep better, which promotes weight loss and pain reduction.
