Is it true that physical exercise can lead to joint
Physical exercise, if done in the proper
way and proper "dose", helps in maintaining the
joints in health.
However, if one does either too much exercise or
does it with improper technique, the joint surfaces rub against
each other, thereby damaging the joint. This can lead to osteoarthritis
later in life.
It must be emphasized that despite the good effects
of physical exercise, it is quite capable of doing equal damage
if done carelessly. It is advisable, therefore, that one takes regular
physical exercise under expert guidance.
