Swimming is particularly good for people with arthritis because due to the buoyancy of the water it provides a gentle way to exercise joints and muscles. The water supports joints to encourage free movement and acts as resistance to build muscle strength. Most leisure centre pools are kept at xx degrees which many people with RA find too cold. There are a number of pools across the county that have warmer water and there are also hydrotherapy pools. Please click here for further information.
