  • DISTANCE RUNNING DID NOT INCREASE RISK FOR ARTHRITIS IN MARATHON RUNNERS

 

 

 

“[About 23%] of adults in the United States report doctor-diagnosed arthritis, and existing evidence on whether distance running contributes to hip and knee arthritis is inconclusive,” Danielle Y. Ponzio, MD, said at the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons Annual Meeting. “However, it is a popular topic in the media and this, in part, motivated this study.”
 
A total of 953 marathon runners (52.8% were male) from 37 countries completed a hip and knee joint health survey. Results showed 53% of patients reported hip or knee pain. Multivariate analysis showed an increasing number of marathons were associated with decreased rates of joint pain. In addition, female gender, family history, surgical history, age, and BMI were independent risk factors for arthritis in marathon runners, while there was no significant impact from running volume or intensity, Ponzio noted.
