Seen and Heard

A new study concluded that the Spinning program offers significant benefits for people who suffer from knee osteoarthritis—and it’s making headlines.

Recent issues of The Journal on Active Aging and American Fitness Magazine featured articles that covered findings of a study conducted by cycling enthusiast Greg Marchetti, PhD and rheumatologist Kelly Krohn, MD.

The study followed 41 volunteers with an average age of 57, all with confirmed osteoarthritis. Participants in the Spinning group took part at least twice a week in a class designed specifically for their condition, while the control group continued their regular fitness routines.

After the 12-week evaluation, participants in the Spinning group showed greater improvements in walking performance, experienced less pain when walking and had less symptom-related disability than the control group.

Results were reported at the World Conference for Physical Therapy in June and will be reported in November at the American College of Rheumatology’s annual conference.
