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.
