    The Relationship of Running to
    Osteoarthritis of the Knee and Hip and Bone Mineral
    Density of the Lumbar Spine: A 9 Year Longitudinal
    Study
    .

    Running has become a very popular form of
    exercise among middle aged and older adults.
    There has been some apprehension that running
    might lead to accelerated development of
    osteoarthritis in weight-bearing joints.
    Clinical follow up has given a reassuring
    conclusion that there is no difference in
    osteoarthritis of the hip and knee between runners
    and non-runners. Also
    there is some increased bone mineral density in
    higher lumbar spine in runners but this is not
    significant.

    It
    is now recognised that HIV infection can produce
    distinct inflammatory articular reaction.
    However, the questions remain as to why is
    HIV arthritis self-limited even while the infection
    is prolonged ?

        

    The
    second question is why does it occur more frequently
    in the late stages of HIV infection and not in the
    early stages?
