"Exercising in water is generally very good for patients, because there's less weight across the joints," Klippel says, especially people with Osteoarthritis of the hips or knees, the most common form of arthritis. "It may also promote weight loss," he adds. "Any exercise for a person with arthritis that can lead to weight loss is very beneficial."
"The heat from the warm water makes joint movement in the person with arthritis much easier," says Washington, D.C., rheumatologist Dr. Jack Klippel, medical director of the Arthritis Foundation. "We consider it an important component of therapy."
