In brief: Preventing Arthritis

We know that joint trauma, aging, obesity are factors that promote the osteoarthritic form of arthritis, sometimes as early as the thirties.
Protecting your joints by choosing healthier exercises patterns when younger, continuing to exercise with your joints mildly (proven to help), keeping your weight down to normal, all help.
