Positive Effects of Running

Excellent news for all you runners and want to be runners

New research has shown that “running significantly reduced arthritis and hip replacement risk” in a study of many thousands of runners. Note: a large part of this was due in part to runners being typically skinnier…ie. weight being the trump factor. Even still this research flies in the face of the common assumption that running is harder on your joints. What this research clearly shows is that running is either neutral or helpful and weight is a much more important factor regardless of whether you walk or run 🙂

Before embarking on your next run make sure you visit your osteopath Dr Matthew.
