Obesity is a widely-accepted risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis (OA). In fact, nearly one-third of al US adults with obesity have some form of doctor-diagnosed arthritis, with OA being the most common form.
Musculoskeletal pain is associated with both conditions and is a major contributor to disability in these populations, with personal and societal impact. Exercise should be a first-line intervention for obesity and OA, as it has been shown to positively influence these conditions with respect to reduced musculoskeltal pain.
This program focuses in on these topics with 3 E-Learning Modules.
Module 1- Introduction: How Weight Affects Our Joints
Explains the relationship between obesity and OA
Module 2- Let's Get Moving: Exercise Recommendations
