Doctor :   moving the joint in its regular manner
Doctor :   with gentle streching
User :   is it good to take diclo tbls every day
Doctor :   well the treatment does require painkillers so its ok
Doctor :   Walking can be an excellent exercise choice. Walking helps build strength and maintain joint flexibility, aids in bone health
Doctor :   The best time to exercise is when pain and stiffness are at a minimum. Some people with arthritis prefer exercising after morning stiffness subsides. Others dislike afternoon exercise sessions because they grow more tired as the day progresses. It's a matter of personal preference.
Doctor :   A certain amount of discomfort during exercise is acceptable and expected. If pain lasts two hours or more after exercise, the body is signaling that the exercise session was too strenuous
