  14. 14. Rheumatoid Arthritis and Exercise<br />The dynamic exercise program group saw a statistically significant improvement (p< 0.05) in functionality values after the one month assessment period. There was no significant variability between the groups for the 6 and 12 month assessments. There was also significant improvement in the Nottingham Health profile and aerobic capacity with the DEP group after 1 month but not thereafter.<br />Osteoarthritis and Exercise<br />After 3 months of the dynamic exercise program there were significant improvements in walking, flexibility and arthritic pain (p<0.05). There was also significant improvement in aerobic capacity, hamstring and low back flexibility, quad isometric strength, hamstring isometric strength, and hamstring isokinetic strength. <br />Conclusions<br />
