Do this for less than 10 minutes a day to prevent disability as you age

It may sound counterintuitive, but people suffering from arthritis pain in their legs and feet may want to try walking it out.

In fact, just one hour of moderate to brisk walking a week — or less than 10 minutes a day — was shown to help stop disability in older adults by helping them keep up their ability to perform daily tasks, according to a new Northwestern Medicine study.

Researchers studied more than 1,500 older adults (ages 49 to 83) participating in the Osteoarthritis Initiative, who were at risk of disability from the degenerative joint disease that worsens over time.
