    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    30 Day Joint Friendly Exercise Challenge!
    Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Exercise may help reduce joint pain , swelling, and stiffness, and increase muscle strength and flexibility. It also can give you more energy.

    Of course, knowing why you should exercise and doing it are two different things. So, this month we are going to make things a little more interesting and give you a challenge! :)

    For the month of April, we would like to challenge those that are ready to a joint-friendly fitness experiment. Let's see if you commit to one month of exercise if it has any impact on your knee or hip pain.

    Each week I'll post new resources and articles to help you along the way and the community will be here to support you on your month long challenge. At the end of the month, we will take your stories and feature YOU in an upcoming WebMD Pulse Blog article!

    Are you ready to get moving? Here's a couple joint-friendly exercise resources that will give you some exercise suggestions:

    As always, please check with your doctor before attempting to begin an exercise routine. If you have other exercise questions I encourage you to check out and participate on our Fitness & Exercise Community!

    Feedback? Let me know your questions or anything else I can do to help you get started!! I'll be checking back in soon!

    Good luck!
