*WELLNESS TIP* If you have hip, knee, or shoulder problems, don't stop physical activity. You'll most likely have more pain because your joints will be stiff from lack of use. Talk with your doctor about your pain. Add small activities, like walking, to your day and slowly increase your level of activity.
