Exercise is not cause of Osteoarthritis : Exercising is good for your health, no one will deny it. But often you must have heard people saying that due to excessive exercise, the risk of joint pain remains. But now a team of international researchers has claimed that there is nothing like this. From the study of these researchers, it has been found that there is no relationship between exercise and the development of knee arthritis. In the journal Arthritis & Rheumatology published This study has been done by researchers from Oxford University. Researchers recently conducted a comprehensive analysis of global studies of 5065 participants with osteoarthritis of the knee and tracked it for 5 to 12 years. It found that most recreational activities for these adults over the age of 45 are risk-free. Recreational activities here include running, cycling, swimming, or sports.
The study found that while all of these had little or no effect on the knee, any work that involved lifting heavy weights, kneeling, or involving movement or vibrations throughout the body is still risky.
Research examines physical exercise
Researchers from Oxford say that this is the first study in itself to examine the relationship between physical exercise and calories burned during activity and osteoarthritis of the knee.
of Oxford University Dr. Thomas Perry “The findings of this study suggest that physical energy consumption during whole-body physical activity, sports, walking, cycling is not associated with osteoarthritis of the knee.”
The habit of running will save from arthritis
At the same time, it has been seen in another study that the habit of running is helpful in giving 12 years protection from arthritis. According to the study, the symptoms of arthritis start 12 years late in life beyond the habit of running. It has also been found that the onset of arthritis in runners is on average 12 years later than in those who do not exercise.
