In brief: Physical activity!

Physical activity helps the most! it is declining.
Obesity hurts the worst. It is increasing. Good time to wish you were an orthopedist. DJD of major weight bearing joints is skyrocketing...

Thanks, mick, i don't have osteoarthritis.
But if i did, i would use a combination of physical therapy and drugs. The oldest (and still works) is aspirin.
