Prevalence of leisure-time physical activity among persons with arthritis & other rheumatic conditions--United States, 1990-1991

  [ 35 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Anonymous • www.ProHealth.com • May 9, 1997


Although regular physical activity is associated with important
physical and mental health benefits, an estimated 53 million
U.S. adults are inactive during their leisure time--the
period most amenable to efforts to increase physical
activity. The presence of chronic conditions, especially
those associated with disabilities, may reduce levels of
leisure time physical activity (LTPA). Arthritis and other
rheumatic conditions (e.g., osteoarthritis, rheumatoid
arthritis, gout, fibromyalgia, and other diseases of the
joints) are leading causes of disability and are among the
most prevalent chronic conditions in the United States,
affecting approximately 40 million persons in 1995 and a
projected 60 million persons in 2020. This report uses data
from the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention (HPDP)
supplement of the 1990-1991 National Health Interview Survey
(NHIS) to provide estimates of LTPA among persons with
arthritis and other rheumatic conditions by disability status
and compares these estimates with those for persons without
arthritis and other rheumatic conditions. The findings
indicate that the prevalence of LTPA among persons with
arthritis and other rheumatic conditions is less than that
among persons without arthritis and other rheumatic
conditions.
