The reason is because these sports exert higher forces on the joints with a 2016 study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine finding that “male athletes participating in elite impact sports are at an increased risk of developing hip OA”.

As well as highlighting the risk of repeated sudden changes of direction, the findings also added “those participating in high-level long-distance running do not have a clearly elevated risk”.

While running for the most part does not cause arthritis, the terrain on which a person engages in running or exercise could exacerbate symptoms of osteoarthritis due to the constant requirement to adjust the posture on every step causing the hip joints to work harder.

Should an individual relatively new to regular exercise want to increase their distance it is advised that they limit their initial explorations to smooth surfaces.
