his functional status. (The KJOC is 10 questions, each scored 0 [low function] to 10 [high function], with a top score of 100.) After review of the PRO, the patient’s primary complaints were an inability to accurately throw to a target (1 out of 10), decreased velocity (2 out of 10), and weakness with

Engagement in low-intensity PA can improve functional status and contribute to “disability-free life expectancy” ( Feinglass et al., 2005 , p. 879). This emphasis on low-intensity PA is consistent with Taylor et al.’s ( 2008
