Older Adults With Arthritis Need Just 45 Minutes of Activity per Week

Volume 7    |    Issue 8

Doctors tell us we need to have 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. They say that doing so will prevent premature death and serious illness. Unfortunately, not very many older Americans can meet this goal. The reason is pain.

Most people over the age of 60 suffer from arthritis in their knees. And it's the #1 reason most of these folks don't get up and move. For many of these people, moving that much just sounds miserable. If this describes you, I've got some good news for you — and some great news.

The good news is that a recent study showed that you don't have to do 150 minutes if you can't. In the study, Northwestern Medicine researchers wanted to determine if there was a less overwhelming activity goal that would be a "minimum" activity level. The number they came up with was 45 minutes per week (about six-and-a-half minutes a day). Why was that the magic number?

At lower levels, the researchers found that only one-third of the participants improved or had high function after two years. But those who reached 45 minutes of moderate activity "were 80% more likely to improve or sustain high future function over two years compared with those doing less. This finding was true for both men and women."

For some people, even six minutes a day might be too much. The key is to get moving. But if the pain is just too much, there's something else you can do.

Many folks who suffer from knee pain will take pain pills. Not only are these highly addictive, they have tremendous side effects. Even over-the-counter pain pills can cause stomach bleeding.

The great news is there's something that works every bit as well as aspirin for knee pain, but it doesn't have any of the side effects. It's called Ultimate Knee Relief. It has willow bark in it to fight the pain. And it has turmeric in it to fight inflammation.

If you can't get exercise because of arthritis pain, this simple remedy may be all you need to get up and get moving.
