Walking aids osteoarthritis.

Dr Kristiann Heesch reported in Arthritis Research on preliminary trials of walking combined with glucosamine sulphate in osteoarthritis sufferers.

Those walking 1500 steps at a time, twice a day, 3 days a week reported significantly less arthritis pain, and significantly improved physical function.

When walking was increased to 6,000 steps per day, there were further benefits, but these were minor compared to the gains under the 1500 x 2 x 3 regime.

Patients were given a walking guide, a log book and a pedometer to encourage them.

The glucosamine sulphate dose was 1,500mg/day.
