Knee-jerk reaction: giving up on Zumba – BY MICHAEL ROIZEN AND MEHMET OZ – May 26, 2010
After trying Zumba, my knees hurt for two days. I have arthritis and some joint degeneration. Is this just a short-term reaction? Or should I not take Zumba classes?
A. Don’t give up on Zumba just yet. Some people with arthritis say this spicy, energizing blend of aerobics, salsa and basic dance moves has gotten them moving when nothing else has.
