Exercise helps osteoarthritis
Activity is the best remedy for those suffering from osteoarthritis.
"Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease that affects about 10 percent of
the population over age 60,""said Dr. Robert Luchi, a professor of medicine-geriatrics
at the Huffington Center on Aging at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
"Most suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee."
Recent research has shown aerobic exercise and strength training can
reduce the pain and save joint function better than rest. Luchi said walking,
bicycling, weight training, and swimming are all healthy exercises that
can be performed three to four times a week.
