Question: How do I find a good fitness trainer for my arthritis, and should he/she be in contact with my doctor?

Answer: When I'm talking to my patients who have arthritis about an exercise regimen, the first place I send them is to the physical therapist. With a therapist, they can pick up a group of exercises that they will incorporate into their own workout regimen. I'm certainly a fan of personal trainers, but it's nice to have a core set of Next: How Can Exercise Be Used To Help Me Deal With My Arthritis, And Are Certain Types Of Exercises Better Than Others?
