Physical activity, arthritis, and disability in older people.

Abstract:

:Physical activity protects against the development of chronic disease and disability. There appears to be little risk of damage to joints from regular, moderate-level exercise. Patients with arthritis can safely participate in exercise programs and often have relief of pain and disability. The most difficult problem facing practitioners is how to get people with arthritis to start and maintain an exercise program.
