Exercise may prevent pain in older adults

Dr. Bonnie Bruce of Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, said that running and other forms of vigorous exercise may prevent some of the aches that come with age. In a study of 866 healthy adults age 50 and over, Dr. Bruce and her researchers found that those who exercised regularly were less likely to develop painful joints and muscles over the next 14 years, with the active adults' pain-rating scores consistently 25% lower than their peers despite them being more likely to have a history of bone fracture. Sedentary peers had a higher rate of arthritis. Reuters Health

Thanks for the helpful information. I always enjoy reading about adjunctive and natural medicine. It helps people take responsibility for themselves, which is so important in my years of practice.
