‘Moving is the Best Medicine’ PSA

The Arthritis Foundation and the Ad Council have come up with these videos promoting exercise and movement to help in the fight against osteoarthritic pain. This vid makes me chuckle every time I watch it! Check it out!





Also stop by their website. The site has some fantastic resources, including a tool for assessing your osteoarthritis risk, community support forums, and a local events calendar: FightArthritisPain.org
Did you know that one in five U.S. adults, or 46 million people, has arthritis? An estimated 67 million will have it by 2030, but as the PSA shows us, ‘Moving is the Best Medicine’ to fight the pain of osteoarthritis – the most common form of arthritis.

Hi FD! My Mom and Grandmother have severe Arthritis. I'm am heading over there now to check it out. The vid is funny! Thanks for the info.

I have not been feeling well for the past week or so, starting to return to normal. :) Trying to make my rounds this morning and get caught up! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

PS - The weather should be decent here this weekend, so I'm going to "keep moving"!!! :)

Certainly memorable ... body popping to keep healthy. Not so funny when you think how many people now get less than 20 minutes raised heart activity per day. It amazes me how the body keeps going so long when treated so bad :-(

Really funny! But behind that funny video is a big truth: excercising IS the best medicine. I try to take a jog every morning so I can feel pumped and energetic for the rest of the day. The bad thing is that most of the streets near my neighbourhood are cracked and bumpy and I need to really pay attention or else I could trip and fall... I think streets should be more excercise-friendly...
