Is exercise good for everything? Yep, even Osteoarthritis.

An article that reviewed many studies published on the topic of Osteoarthritis stated that:

"In conclusion, literature shows clear improvement of OA symptoms in patients undertaking exercise programs.When it comes to exercise programs, both low- and high-resistance training with or without weight bearing has been shown to have beneficial effects."

So this brings up the question does running/lifting/working hard cause osteoarthritis (as most professionals agree)? Or could the cause possibly be the last topic of excess inflammation?
