Aerobic exercise 'safe for arthritis patients'

  • 1 Comment

Cardio-respiratory aerobic exercise is safe for patients with stable rheumatoid arthritis, according to French researchers.

They reviewed 14 studies including 1,040 middle aged patients with RA disease duration of one to 16 years.  They found patients who exercised regularly had improved function, less joint pain, and greater quality of life. 

“While past studies have indicated that RA patients are quite physically inactive, our study shows aerobic exercise to be a safe and beneficial intervention for this group,” the authors said online in the journal Arthritis Care & Research.
