MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - Achieving a healthier life can be as simple as taking a daily walk, according to information shared in a recent EmpowHER article. And the good news is, now more than ever, adults are taking up walking. These great findings received attention from the creators of The HurryCane™.
The article referenced a study documented in Arthritis Care and Research. This information indicated that a walking regimen could have myriad health benefits, including increased balance and strength as well as an uptick in overall health. For those who feel the pain and stiffness of arthritis, the study indicates regular walking can reduce that discomfort. Furthermore, like any exercise routine, walking builds confidence.
Material shared in Arthritis Today supports these claims. It is accepted that physical exercise can decrease an adult's risk of health problems. Walking is associated with reduced risks of diseases like heart disease and diabetes. The information posits walking is especially important for individuals who suffer from arthritis, as it can help reduce pain and improve mobility.
Courtney Hoefener of The HurryCane™ commented: "From reducing the pain of arthritis to building mental confidence, the benefits of walking go on and on. We need to get our seniors up on their feet. They'll feel better and lead better lives."
EmpowHER also mentions a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that noted 48 percent of adults get their suggested amount of aerobic exercise. The government recommends only two hours and 30 minutes of moderate exercise, like walking at a brisk pace, per week.
Walking as a form of regular exercise also gained attention from experts at the CDC and the Arthritis Foundation. The EmpowHER article quotes CDC Director, Thomas R. Frieden as referring to physical activity, like walking, as "a wonder drug." Furthermore, the Vice President for public health at the Arthritis Foundation, Patience White, expressed excitement that adults who suffer from arthritis are turning to walking as a form of exercise. She goes on to state that the foundation hopes to focus its efforts on encouraging people with arthritis to engage in walking on a more regular basis.
