We all know that exercise is good for us. Not only does it help keep our hearts beating efficiently and our bodies at a healthy weight, it can reduce the risk of some serious illnesses.

But when your body hurts, it’s difficult to motivate yourself to exercise. Pain or stiffness in joints like your knees and hips can keep many people from going on that morning run or hitting the gym after work.

The good news is that there are a lot of great alternatives to high impact exercise.

Mountainstate Orthopedic Assoc. recommends 8 joint-friendly exercises that will burn fat without jarring joints.

“By toning the muscles surrounding your knees, hips and back, you can reduce pain and improve your posture, alignment and overall joint mobility,” said Dr. Matthew Darmelio at Mountainstate Orthopedic Assoc.
