Heading off arthritis
People can reduce their risk of the most common form of arthritis – and can reduce the risk that the condition will get worse if they have it. That
form is osteoarthritis, where the cartilage at the ends of bones breaks down, so the bones can rub against each other.
Hootman says people who have osteoarthritis can learn how to manage the symptoms. And she says being physically active – things like walking, cycling or swimming – can reduce the pain. She also says weight training can strengthen muscle around joints.
