Impact Exercises Could Possibly Help Arthritis

The Arthritis Foundation—September 7, 2017

The Arthritis Foundation featured HSS exercise physiologist Polly de Mille RN, MA, RCEP, CSCS, USAT in an article about the potential benefits of impact exercise for those with arthritis. According to a study, women with mild knee osteoarthritis experienced an increase in knee cartilage quality after doing impact movements every week.

The article advised to build up slowly to jumping exercises. "It’s important to first build strength in the surrounding muscles, which support and protect the joint," said de Mille.

Once you are cleared for higher-impact exercises by a physician, it’s important to learn proper form from a physical therapist. "You should land softly, so that there’s no noise upon impact," noted de Mille.
