Increasing physical activity among adults with arthritis by Mary B. Waterman, MPH, and Patience H. White, MD, MA
Arthritis is a serious disease that can be disabling, but a diagnosis of arthritis does not mean that an active life is out of reach. Physical activity is a safe and effective tool for managing the disease. However, few adults with arthritis engage in physical activity. Becoming and staying active is extremely important for these individuals, making the role of the active-aging professional key in helping individuals with arthritis live well.
