Regular exercise and early treatment can help people suffering from arthritis to beat the pain of the disease, according to researchers.

The researchers noted that the chances of disability could be significantly reduced when drugs, which can halt the disease’s destructive process, are started soon after it begins. They concluded that physical activity could help relieve the pain of a range of conditions including arthritis, back pain and brittle bone disease.

According to research published in the journal Mayo Clinic Health Letter, drugs can prevent the immune system from attacking the joints. But the longer the disease persists, the less likely it will respond to treatment.

Experts  in Norway found that exercise therapy for bone and muscle conditions had clear medical benefits. But for neck pain, hip osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing

spondylitis, improvements were less significant.
