Expatriate healthcare insurance customers with osteoarthritis may wish to ensure they continue exercising.
Chief executive of The Arthritic Association Lynda Scott-Williams admitted this many seem "counter-intuitive" to many.
However, "Nature's own lubricants" are encouraged to flow around the affected areas when people move gently around, so it is actually "essential", she continued.
The expert said activities including pilates and t'ai chi are beneficial as they can "strengthen muscles" and reduce the strain felt around joints.
Furthermore, swimming and walking are also "good forms of exercise" for everyone with this condition, she asserted.
Research published on behalf of the American College of Rheumatology by Wiley Blackwell, available in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, found chondroitin sulfate could also improve the hand function of sufferers, enhance their grip strength, lessen morning stiffness and decrease pain.
Ms Scott-Williams also recommended consuming foods rich in Omega 3 as well as controlling weight through portion control, as heavier people will put more pressure on their bones.
