Arthritis sufferers: Stretching works!
And stretching with a pair of 2½-pound Greenbells works even better - since Greenbells are grip-free.
The Arthritis Foundation urges daily range of motion and flexibility exercise for arthritis sufferers: "Exercise is considered the most effective non-drug treatment for reducing pain and improving movement in osteoarthritis. Range-of-motion exercises include gentle stretching and movements that take joints through their full span. Doing these exercises regularly – ideally every day – can help maintain and even improve the flexibility in your joints.”
Watch this short video and hear what Neurologist and Wellness Expert Dr. John Tew, M.D., has to say about arthritis and Greenbells.
Greenbells are the only handweight you can exercise with that you don't have to grip. That's what makes them unique, and that's what makes them ideal for seniors and others with gripping problems. Now, you can exercise with light weights and not worry about dropping them.
Greenbells are the perfect tool for arthritis sufferers to stretch and do light exercise. Arthritis sufferers will vastly improve their flexibility and stability, without risking pain or injury.
Dr. John Tew, a noted neurosurgeon, neurologist and wellness expert who recently retired from the Mayfield Clinic in Cincinnati, and who himself suffers from osteoarthritis has this to say:
"The advantage of the Greenbell is that it's gripless. It's great for people like me who have arthritis and need to do exercises to improve our sustainable strength and flexibility. Short bursts of exercise are extremely helpful. The principal value of Greenbells is you don't have to hold on them. I strongly recommend them for senior citizens. Give them a try."
