If your feet hurt, nothing feels good! And if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA), foot problems often follow. In fact, about 90% of people with RA eventually develop foot or ankle symptoms.
The good news: These exercises designed by Marnie-Laatz-Dominy, MS, an exercise physiologist, author, weight-loss coach and fitness instructor in Seattle, Washington, can help. So crank up your iPod or pop in a lively CD and do this series twice a day, morning and evening—the entire workout only takes 5 minutes! You can perform the moves seated or standing.
