Accordingly to a survey, just 37 percent of adults with arthritis met the least stringent physical activity guidelines established by a panel of experts in arthritis, physical activity and public health in 2001 — a percentage similar to people without arthritis.

But participation rates at the more rigorous federally recommended levels of physical activity were even lower for people with arthritis — 30 percent compared with 33 percent for people without arthritis.
