Risk of Arthritis/ Back Problems etc

Low to moderate exercise helps reduce the onset of arthritis, OP and spinal problems eg. vertebral disc flattening/prolapsing, nerve impingement. Exercise at high instensity can accelerate this.

At what point do we draw the compromise regarding exercise intensity and age to maintain skeletal health to its optimum, weight training, running or any other activities contributing as factors?

It seems most risk it till something happens eh?
