    What kind(s) of exercise(s) do you do?
    CarlDF posted:
    I have osteoarthritis in knees, hips and spine. I was wondering what kinds of joint safe exercise(s) people do?
    _swank_ responded:
    Swimming is the best exercise you can do for arthritic joints in my opinion. I couldn't live without a pool.
    CarlDF replied to _swank_'s response:
    Sounds good!
    mayaone replied to CarlDF's response:
    I have been dancing all my life and probably this has eased my pain, just keeping moving. I do take a lot of hot epsom baths before and after excercise so that's like swimming I guess. I also am now doing PT in a warm pool.

    I found Thai massage to be a Godsend.
