During the study, Jordan and colleagues evaluated exercise and physical activity of 1,522 patients between 1999 and 2010.

They studied whether a minimum of 150 minutes of activity per week had an adverse effect on the incidence of radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) or symptomatic incident radiographic knee OA.

"This study shows that engaging in physical activity at these levels is not going to put you at a greater risk of knee osteoarthritis. Furthermore, we found this held true no matter what a person's race, sex or body weight is. There was absolutely no association between these factors and a person's risk," researchers said.
