11. Yoga for arthritis treatment- Yoga related to breathing would be useful but making certain position for Yoga can be harmful for joints. Arthritis joints have limited movement, please do not stress on them. Do Yoga that is related breathing it would relieve pain in joints, it is also recommended in Ayurveda artha Tatwa also.

12. Meditation- Tension is also a reason behind Arthritis, Meditation help you in reducing them and control any stress or anxiety. Try to do at-least 2 min a day.
