Keep Arthritis At Bay
Another benefit of regular walking is the boon in keeping arthritis at bay. Obviously if you suffer with arthritis you should only undertake exercise regimes under the advice of your doctor, but according to Arthritis Today, maintaining good circulation and keeping your health in check will help alleviate any stress on your bones.
Taking up walking before the onset of arthritis could even help prevent or at least delay the onset. An active physiology is more resistant to disease, maintains bone density and keeps supple joints as helpful side benefits.
