💥𝐄𝐱𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐢𝐬𝐞 & 𝐀𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐬💥 • Great post by @rehabscience! ——— 🔎New research demonstrating a mechanism through which exercise may work to reduce the risk of osteoarthritis. – 🧠In the study cited below, researchers subjected chondrocytes (cartilage cells) to mechanical loading, which activated the HDAC6 protein and lead to a suppression of inflammatory signaling. – 👣Often times, I run into people who worry that exercise will damage their joints. Hopefully, this research will change this belief and help others understand that loading their joints can positively influence cartilage health and reduce the risk of developing arthritis. •••••••••• 📚Fu S, et al. Mechanical loading inhibits cartilage inflammatory signalling via an HDAC6 and IFT-dependent mechanism regulating primary cilia elongation.
