Fight Arthritis Pain

Play Tennis and Battle Arthritis

Fight Arthritis Pain
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.

 

Tennis pro Brian Teacher, who won the 1981 Australian Open, was diagnosed with severe osteoarthritis at age 34. He learned to manage the pain from the disease by staying active.  Watch Brian speak about his life post-tennis, and how he's found the motivation to fight his osteoarthritis pain.
