    There's walking exercise and theres running marathons exercise. Or pickle ball vs four hours tennis exercise. One probably hastens OA while other is probably beneficial to aging movement and prevention.

    As in life in general. All things in moderation for the win.

    Btw. Having a dog was the root cause of my stair injury. 😡😍🤪🥰😡🐕💉

      I think it is easy to forget that for most of history the physically disabled were “out of sight, out of mind,” and older house designs reflect that. For much of history, if somebody became severely physically disabled, they became a shut in if they could not manage stairs, curbs, etc. Society at large made no effort to accommodate these people. Heck, the Americans with Disabilities Act, which feels like it has been around forever, was only passed in 1990. Now we are more aware of disability and more determined to make spaces accessible to the disabled, And newer home designs (which feature first floor full bedrooms and bathrooms and wider hallways and doorways) have changed accordingly.

      I tell patients that all the time. "It's a wear and tear condition, it's a function of age, not much you can do about it. The decline is inevitable. Live with it." End of discussion. Bill 99213. Rinse and repeat. But why do chondrocytes wear and tear faster than others?

          Everything behind a paywall; 1.4m Instagram followers; "as heard on Joe Rogan." That's three strikes against! What magic elixir is he selling?

          All classical squat and lunge training dictates keeping knees from falling over toes. Is he recommending something different?

          Are Nordic ham curls or sled pulls better than properly executed back squats, traditional deadlifts, Bulgarian split squats, and Romanian deadlifts?

            As his name implies, yes he thinks you squat wrong, has some evidence to back it up. You can get the basic gist of his philosophy for free on YouTube

              If we ever come up with an answer to that question, and a way to stimulate chondrocytes to grow and divide (without turning into chondrosarcoma), we will be putting a lot of orthopedic surgeons out of business. If you think about it, it’s weird that cartilage wears down, but bone does not. Bone can generally regrow and repair itself. Why can’t cartilage? For a while there was some hope that stem cell injections would allow cartilage to become self repairing, but that doesn’t seem to have worked.

              A true cure for osteoarthritis (as opposed to surgical joint replacement) would be an absolute game changer in terms of improving the life and health of older people. Fingers crossed that some smart people eventually figure the puzzle out.

                I'm under no illusion that I'm approximating anywhere close to being elite by doing this. But from a strength and physical perspective, I'm dominating my pre pregnancy self(when my wife was pregnant, not me off course).

                  Do we know with a hundred percent certainty that chondrocytes can't repair itself? While I can't micronize myself and upload an iphone video the machinations of the subcellular mitochondrial implosion, I believe that when metabolism goes to crap, so do all histologic categories. What perturbs metabolism? Overeating, modern processed foods, inactivity, stress, bad sleep, and loneliness. Addressing these things through the ICD cash register is highly unprofitable. Plus one don't sound esoteric or convincing, just like the way I'm sounding right now.

                    How certain are you that OA is a strictly a wear and tear phenomenon? Do you think diet can play a role in your likelihood of developing OA? Is it possible that the cure to OA was abolished a hundred years ago when big food changed the diets of Americans (and eventually the rest of the world)?

                    I think context (diet and lifestyle) matters. I’d also like to believe that I have more control over the aging of my body rather than having to sit back and watch it fall apart. There is pretty good evidence that the way you breathe and the food you eat can alter the structure of your face. I’d say there is a good chance your nutrition (and the nutrition of your parents) plays a bigger role than you think in how the rest of your body ages as well. I also think that a person eating an appropriate diet and putting a lot of “wear and tear” on their body would suffer less than a person eating junk and sitting in a lazy boy all day.

                    Weston A Price’s book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration written almost a century ago is a good.
