Inflammations lead to swelling and hinder movement, complicating daily activities and potentially affecting work and emotions. At bbb health boutique, we are here to advise and support you in managing rheumatic symptoms.

Exercise with rheumatism

It is crucial to stay active and strengthen the body, preferably with exercises that fortify the muscles around the joints without overloading them. Maintaining activities, social engagement, and independence contributes to the quality of life, even though symptoms can be erratic and accepting their variability is essential.

Rheumatism can also cause emotional stress, where adjustments and aids can help. Communicating about your situation with others and being aware of how a healthy lifestyle can support you is invaluable. Making behavioral changes can be challenging, but internal motivation and time are crucial.

Continuing to move is essential, although it’s important to choose the right forms of exercise and avoid putting too much strain on the joints. Heat can be beneficial in reducing joint stiffness, but finding the right balance and avoiding overexertion is important.

Healthy nutrition

In addition to exercise, nutrition is also an important focus. A varied diet with sufficient proteins, vitamins, and minerals is crucial. Specific foods, such as omega-3 fatty acids and anti-inflammatory foods, can be beneficial, while others, such as alcohol and red meat, should be avoided.

A healthy lifestyle with balanced nutrition and adequate physical activity is of great importance. Losing excess weight can reduce the strain on the joints, while a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats can have anti-inflammatory properties.

Supplements can be an addition, but consulting with a doctor or dietitian is recommended to ensure you’re getting the correct doses. It is important to be aware of your body’s specific needs and to continuously adapt to changing conditions.

I am chronically ill and experience (muscle) pain 24 hours a day. I have been working out at bbb for about a year now, and just coming to the boutique feels good. It’s nice to be around people, and I find my pain more stable. The coaches know you, are involved and understanding, they motivate you and know what you need. It’s pleasant to exercise in an environment with only women. You can be yourself, and the coaches offer top-notch guidance.
