Overseas health insurance policyholders who have had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) diagnosed can manage the condition with gentle exercise and periods of rest, a charity has said.
Kate Llewelyn, head of information at Arthritis Care, noted that a successful exercise regime will contain a balance of activity and respite.
"Do a range of movement exercises at least once a day," she advised overseas medical insurance customers with the condition.
"If done in the morning they help ease morning stiffness and if done before going to bed at night they may help reduce it."
Ms Llewelyn advised suffers to participate in low-impact aerobic exercises, including swimming and cycling, and using strengthening activities to build muscle, which can help support joints.
Her comments come after research presented at the Radiological Society of North America's annual meeting indicated that simple changes to physical activities can help people at risk of osteoarthritis delay or prevent the onset of the disease.
