To Alleviate Pain Associated With Arthritis Should Definitely Exercise – Part 1 of 3
To Alleviate Pain Associated With Arthritis Should Definitely Exercise. Patients with knee or aware osteoarthritis fare better if they continue to do their physical therapy exercises after completing a supervised practise therapy at a medical facility, new research indicates. The Dutch study also found that arthritis patients reported less pain, improved muscle strength and a better range of turmoil when they followed their provider’s recommendations for overall exercise (such as walking) and a physically active lifestyle – a choice that improved the long-range effectiveness of supervised therapy.
The findings, reported online and in the August linocut issue of Arthritis Care & Research, stem from work conducted by a team of researchers led by Martijn Pisters of the Netherlands Institute for Health Services Research and the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands. The den authors noted in a news release from the journal’s publisher that the World Health Organization deems osteoarthritis (OA) to be one of the 10 most disabling conditions in the developed world.
