Study: Lack of exercise in people suffering from arthritis

December 11, 2011 — Last week, NPR featured a story about a recent Northwestern University study on osteoarthritis.
The study, which evaluated 1,000 participants living with osteoarthritis of the knee, found that 90 percent of those surveyed did not perform at least 10 minutes of moderate activity through the course of aweek.

According to researchers, by exercising, muscles more effectively support the weight of the body and take pressure off the joints.

Learn what exercises you can recommend to patients living with arthritis by checking out ACA's Healthy Living Patient Fact Sheet on rheumatoid arthritis.
