(19:20) Guest: Amy Huebeschmann, Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and researcher with the Center for Women’s Health Research Nobody will be surprised to hear me say that research shows exercise is good for us. It helps with physical and mental fitness. It can prolong life. But that’s a tough message to hear when you face physical limitations that make it hard – even seemingly impossible – to exercise. Dr. Huebschmann says that exercise “doesn’t have to be for a very long period of time to be beneficial.” “The first thing is to make sure if you have pain when being active to talk to your doctor but the majority of people even with moderately severe arthritis should not preclude you or keep you from being active,” says Huebschmann. “You’re never too old to be physically active,” assures Huebschmann.
