Rebounding And Arthritis
First let me say that I am by no means a doctor and all of what I am about to say just comes from anecdotal evidence looking at the results other people have had from Cellercsing. So, please don’t take my advice like I am a doctor and always consult your physician before beginning any new exercise or dietary programs. The following information is just my personal opinion and thoughts on the topic of arthritis and how rebounding on a Cellerciser may help.
The Cellerciser has a very low impact bounce due to the way the springs are designed. The deceleration is more gradual than any other rebounder I’ve ever experienced. This means that there is far less jarring at the bottom of the bounce. People with arthritis need to exercise (just like everyone else) to reduce the symptoms/pain of arthritis. Arthritis is primarily a disease of inflammation so it is important to take steps towards fighting that inflammation. The movement of the joint will press out the old fluid so that new fluid can replace it. This lets new white blood cells come in to reach the infected area and fight inflammation. Now the lymphatic system can get rid of the toxins and slow the progression of disease.
With that in mind, you should start out light and easy and not do anything overly strenuous that might cause injury. Perhaps even start with just a light health bounce and see how that goes for 5 – 10 minutes per day for a few weeks so your body can adjust to the new movement. After that, marching might be a good next step then perhaps progressing up to jumping jacks. Getting the lymphatic system flowing is important, especially for folks with arthritis. As far as I know, there’s no better, safer, faster, or more effective way to do that than Cellercise.
In addition to exercise, there are some excellent dietary tips that can help with arthritis. One of the most effective supplements to take is krill oil. Krill oil is more effective than traditional fish oil and tends not to have the fishy after taste or burping side-effect. Krill oil has many anti-inflammatory benefits that can dramatically help with arthritis. I personally take Neptune Krill oil every day. Other benefits of krill oil include improving memory, attention span, vision, and even protecting from sun burn. All this is to say that Cellercising and krill oil may both be helpful in fighting arthritis.
