Arthritis is a general term that describes inflammation in joints. Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. It happens when the cartilage in your joints break down, often in your hips, knees, and spine.

People of all ages, sexes and races can and do have arthritis. It is most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older.

What Are the Goals of Yoga Therapy & arthritis? 

Yoga therapy focuses on the body’s ability to engage in movement. Movement can be anything from getting in and out of chairs to climbing stairs, walking in your neighbourhood, playing a sport or participating in recreational activities.

  • Improving the mobility and restoring the use of affected joints

  • Increasing strength to support the joints

  • Maintaining fitness

  • Preserving the ability to perform daily activities

Common arthritis joint symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. They can be mild, moderate or severe. They may stay about the same for years but can progress or get worse over time.

Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs.
