For years, studies have offered conflicting opinions on whether exercise is good for knees. A new report released today by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) provides strong evidence that exercise is, in fact, good for the knees.

The report, titled "What is the Effect of Physical Activity on the Knee Joint? A Systematic Review," was published this month in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exerciseâ®, ACSM's official scientific journal. A research study led by Donna Urquhart, Ph.D., and Flavia Cicuttini, Ph.D., examined the effects of physical activity on individual parts of the knee.

"Several studies have already examined the impact of physical activity on the knee as a whole, but none have looked at the effect of physical activity on individual parts of the knee," said Dr. Cicuttini, head of the musculoskeletal unit in the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University in Australia. "As it turns out, exercise affects each part of the knee differently, which helps explain why there have been conflicting reports for so long."
