Synovial fluid is the lubricant between your joints that allow you to move your toes, fingers, hands, legs and arms with liberty. Arthritis is an inflammatory disease of the joints. When joints get inflamed, the synovial fluid thickens and causes swelling of the joints, which is symptomatic of rheumatoid arthritis. The swelling weakens the surrounding ligaments and muscles as bone and cartilage erode.
Because of the pain in movement, most seniors are reluctant to exercise, but exercise is what they need in order to strengthen the muscles and ligaments around the affected joints, so that the weight of their torso does not put too much stress on the joints.
