Good job, Jen, getting the word out about the benefits of exercise when one has arthritis.
I must admit as a scientist that I was confused in first reading the article however b/c of your incorrect usage of "positive relationship between arthritis and exercise".
There's actually a NEGATIVE relationship between these b/c as exercise goes up, arthritis PAIN goes down. This is therefore an inverse or negative correlation/relationship. A positive relationship would be as one goes up, the other does, too (or down, the other goes down, too)
I think what you're trying to say is that there's a positive EFFECT on arthritis pain when you exercise.
Just trying to clarify it from scientific terminology standpoint so people don't get the wrong idea and think there's something bad about exercising when you have arthritis pain. I try to encourage all my patients to exercise b/c it's wonderful all around for most things.
Thanks for all you do in spreading the great word about exercise and its manifold benefits.
