One in five adults in the United States (50 million people) has arthritis, and an estimated 67 million people could be affected by the year 2030.
The good news is that there are simple steps you can take to prevent or decrease the pain and disability of arthritis. Physical activity is a great weapon in the fight against arthritis, and tennis provides a great all-over workout that burns calories and builds your body’s strength and endurance. Tennis improves balance and flexibility and helps to reduce the load and pain on your joints.
There is no better time to grab a racquet and start playing tennis to battle your pain from osteoarthritis.
