Abstract

Purpose: With high levels of chronic disease (CD) and pain-related functional impairment (PFI), and low levels of physical activity (PA) among middle-aged and older adults, it is important to investigate ways to design age- and health condition-appropriate PA interventions.
Methods: Using Canadian Community Health Survey data, relationships among CD, PFI, covariates, and PA were examined in mid- (40-59y; n=36,288) and later- (60y+, n=44,890) life.
Results/Conclusions: PA levels varied between middle-aged and older groups according to CD and PFI status. Results are useful for developing targeted and tailored PA interventions to support the health of current and future populations.
