In a television interview on “The Arthritis Show,” sports injury and biomechanical expert Frank Musumeci, PT, discusses his fitness programs for guests at Pritikin, an internationally renowned health resort that has been helping people shed weight and launch heart-healthy lifestyles since 1975.
How To Exercise Without Pain
At Pritikin, Mr. Musumeci often sees people who have orthopedic limitations that get in the way of their ability to exercise, and, as a result, their weight-loss and cardiovascular goals.
Because of his 27 years of experience in clinical orthopedic settings, he is keenly aware that “orthopedic issues, like bad knees, often go hand in hand with getting older.”
“But there are many ways to work around these limitations,” he encourages.
In this video, you will learn:
- How to properly assess the pain you’re feeling
- Exercise options put less stress on joints
- How to exercise without pain if you are overweight or obese

“Of course, learning how to exercise without pain isn’t just about losing the pain. Most importantly, it’s about re-gaining your life, your ability to do all the things you want to do,” sums up Mr. Musumeci.
“It’s our chief goal here at Pritikin. We don’t just want you to live. We want you to live well.”
