Yes but it depends on the style you practice. If done properly it can help manage and even improve these conditions. I would recomend a book Asana Pranayama mudra Bhanda by Swami Satyananda Saraswati. It has a great sequence called pawanmuktasana series one: Anti-rheumitic group. This is a good start.
