Professor Mark Batt, a consultant in sport and exercise medicine at Nottingham University Hospitals, said that doing regular exercise is important to keep joints healthy and the long-term benefits of exercise far outweigh the risk of injury.

Professor Alan Silman, medical director of Arthritis Research UK, said that exercise has become increasingly relevant in the treatment of arthritis, as research has shown that the joints, bones and cartilage rely on stimulation of physical activity to repair themselves.
