Osteoarthritis causes pain, joint stiffness and, in some cases, bunion and hammer toe. Considering this, it's understandable that people with the condition have a tendency to lead sedentary lifestyles, even though exercise has been shown to improve the symptoms of osteoarthritis.

A study that was presented recently at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons revealed that patients who exercised with the assistance of a DVD and personal instruction experienced significantly alleviated pain and improved function, compared to a control group.

Authors of the study said their findings suggest that video-based exercise may help patients adhere to an exercise regimen, thereby improving the quality of life for people with osteoporosis.

Individuals with bunions or hammer toe may find it especially challenging to engage in an exercise routine. However, bunion correction through non-invasive methods, like using bunion splints or orthotics, has been shown to effectively reduce the appearance of bony deformities and improve function of the big toe joint.
