Running May Reduce Knee Joint Inflammation, a New Study Finds
Usually, running causes discomfort in joints while running, and running for long distances is believed to be bad for knees. Nevertheless, a new study, conducted by exercise science professors from Brigham Young University, found that molecules causing knee joint inflammation essentially reduce after running.
For their study, the researchers collected the Synovial fluid and serum samples from knee joints of 6 healthy leisure runners aged from 18 to 35, before and after they ran for 30 minutes. The results showed that the cytokines GM-CSF and IL-15 that cause inflammation decreased in levels after running and remained at the same level in a non-running state.
Matt Seeley, the study co-author, said in a press release: “This study does not indicate that distance runners are any more likely to get osteoarthritis than any other person. Instead, this study suggests exercise can be a type of medicine.”
