Billie Jean King Says Exercise Your Best Shot Against Arthritis
Date:8/31/2011

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 31 (HealthDay News) -- Tennis legend Billie Jean King is serving up a powerful shot against an old opponent, arthritis, in a new campaign that stresses the benefits of exercise for people with the condition.

King, 67, has osteoarthritis, the most common form of the disease, which involves a breakdown of the joint's cartilage. The condition affects about 27 million Americans.

Do whatever works for you but keep moving," advised King, who also founded the Women's Tennis Association. She's also remembered as the player who defeated Bobby Riggs in a famous "Battle of the Sexes" tourney in 1973.

The key message of the new Fight Arthritis Pain campaign is that movement and physical activity can help relieve arthritis pain and may even delay the onset of symptoms.

The campaign debuts Wednesday at the 2011 U.S. Open with ads on TV screens and PA announcements, and in signs and materials distributed at the major tennis event. The general campaign will feature TV, radio, print, outdoor and Web ads.

"Arthritis is common, costly, disabling and often thought to be a reality of the aging process that cannot be changed," Arthritis Foundation Chief External Relations Officer Debra Neuman said in the news relea
