Running Does Not Lead to Knee Osteoarthritis and May Protect People From Developing the Disease
A study found that exposure to non-elite running at any time in life is not associated with a higher odds of prevalent ROA, knee pain, and SOA. Those with the lowest BMI were most likely to identify running as a habitual activity.
The findings were observed in a cohort recruited from the community not based on elite running status making these findings potentially more applicable to a broader population. Non-elite running at any time in life does not appear detrimental, and may be protective of SOA.#arthritis #triathlon #running
