(Also known as OA or Osteoarthritis)
It’s a “wear and tear” condition that will only get WORSE with use of your joints.
- Research shows that exercise in those with arthritis does NOT harm joint cartilage
- Our bodies adapt to the stress that we put on it and they get stronger, as long as we progress gradually
- Exercise is safe and better than REST in the long term
