Abstract

With the aging of the work force, occupational health nurses must prepare for encounters with clients who are challenged by osteoarthritis or osteoporosis. Clients should be encouraged to exercise safely to promote functioning at home and work. This article reviews recent literature on the benefits of exercise for workers with osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, or both.
