The best way to pep yourself up in the morning before start your day or go to work is to do some stretch exercises for 10 minutes, for your hands, shoulders, waist, hips and legs  well, for the whole body. It won't take much time and it won't hurt to wake up 5 to 10 minutes early, to do some stretches, that will make you feel invigorated. After the exercise, take a shower and your'e out, you will feel certainly feel totally energised from head to toe! Seriously! 

As you age, muscles tighten and range of motion in the joints become minimized. This can hinder day-to-day, normal motions and actitivites. Doing some stretch exercise for individual parts of your body, can help lengthen your muscles and make daily activities easier. 

Some benefits you can experience from a regular stretch exercises

* Muscle tension will be reduced considerably
* Increase in movement in the joints
* Improved muscular coordination
* Increase in blood circulation to all parts of the body
* Enhanced energy levels (as a result of increased blood circulation)

Benefits of stretching can be enjoyed by people of all ages!  When you have been sitting in a particular position for a long time, or when you wake up in the morning, you stretch unconciously. This means stretching comes to us naturally!  Stretch exercises will give you better overall flexibility, better joint movement and an increase in energy levels, which will enchance your moods too, a great way to start your day!

The elderly or people with joint problems (arthritis or rheumatism), especially in the knees, can request their doctor or physiotherapist to design specific stretch exercises best suited for them. If you face stiffness or persons starting for first time, do the stretches slowly and for lesser counts (5 for beginners, gradually increased to 10 or more, as you gain more flexibility). Donot do any stretches you are uncomfortable with or that leaves you in pain.

In a recent survey on pain conducted by the Stanford University Medical Center, arthritis pain was cited as the chief complaint among America’s seniors, with thirty-two percent of the senior population listing arthritis as the specific cause of their suffering. Arthritis does strike children and young adults as well, although it afflicts the mature segment of the population more frequently. It is estimated that 15% of the American adult population suffer from arthritis, and this number is rising, increasing the demand for arthritis pain relief.

Arthritis is a general term encompassing over 100 different medical conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, the three most common being osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. It causes inflammation in the joints, tendons and ligaments. It manifests in every part of the body, ranging from mild joint stiffness to crippling disability. Sufferers experience the pain of arthritis differently, too; for some, arthritis is at it is most severe upon waking up, while others report that their condition worsens throughout the day. No one knows exactly what causes arthritis, but it is among the oldest of human afflictions.
