Gyms, public pools, and most parks are off limits. Yoga studios are not open, and there is an infection risk in going to physical therapy or even a chiropractor. We are in our homes much of the time and that sets a limit on our activity levels, which leads to stiffness and joint pain. Also, more people are working from home at present with a different work environment. So what are some options for joint relief during these times?

However, stretching, strengthening exercises, and aerobic are all helpful forms of exercise when suffering from chronic issues.

If you are working from home and sitting for longer periods of time it is important to take breaks. Take a few minutes to get up and move around stretching muscles and moving your joints. Here is a range of motion routine that is low impact and can help bring joint relief.
