Exercise as a preventative against disability arising from arthritis



 
A Northwestern University study of more than 3500 individuals over the age of 50 has found correlations between the limiting effects of arthritis and the amount of physical activity engaged in by study participants. Those who exercised at least a half hour per day, 5 days per week, were found to be least likely to become disabled as a result of their arthritic condition as compared to those who exercised less or not at all.

Thirty minutes of daily exercise doesn't seem like much but I'm sure most individuals of all ages fail to achieve this, just as most of us fail to take daily vitamins even though we intend to. There just never seems to be enough time in one's daily schedule.

However, the implications of this study are fairly clear: inactivity for someone with arthritis can contribute to a sharp decline in the ability to engage in normal daily activities. Apparently, the same researcher involved in this Northwestern University study (Joe Feinglass) also found in the mid-90's that individuals who were the least physically active were the most likely to develop difficulty performing the most basic daily activities such as bathing, walking, getting out of bed, and dressing.
