Is running a one way road to arthritis?

Recreational running does not cause knee osteoarthritis. Conversely, running is shown to have a preventative and protective effect on reducing knee and hip osteoarthritis and higher rates of knee/hip osteoarthritis have been reported in non-runners/sedentary people.

Runners with knee osteoarthritis should feel safe to continue to run but may need to decrease the frequency of runs to allow for sufficient cartilage recovery time between sessions.
