This review will examine publications which have investigated exercise intervention to promote physical activity in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Literature was searched using PubMed, Medline, Google Scholar, Cochrane Library and Web of Science. Overall, the studies demonstrated the promotion of physical activity in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Although there were aerobic, strengthening, stretching or combined exercise interventions, the majority of studies evaluated used combined exercise. There were no specific physical activity guidelines for people with rheumatoid arthritis and, additionally, a lack of data regarding the type, frequency and intensity of appropriate exercise in people with rheumatoid arthritis, therefore further studies are recommended.
