Physical activity is important for everyone and plays a key-role in overall well-being. Daily movement is even more important in psoriatic disease. Being active with psoriatic disease has a lot of benefits. These benefits include increased flexibility, decreased joint pain and stiffness, improved range of motion, and improved endurance. Exercise can help with mental health too! It may seem strange but being active may also help to make you feel less tired!
You don’t need to go out and buy an expensive gym membership to be active. All forms of movement count. Take a walk around the block, work in the yard, or tackle some of those housecleaning chores you’ve been putting off.
Talk to your doctor about what types of exercise are best for you and how often. Get to feeling your best, without overdoing it, by following an appropriate exercise plan designed with your lifestyle and physical abilities in mind.
