Knee Osteoarthritis is a condition where individuals will commonly experience pain/discomfort at most days of the month, and often have a series of other signs and symptoms such as joint popping, bony enlargement, bony tenderness, and more.

People will commonly think the condition is from wear and tear, meaning that exercise is going to worsen it, but our body of research actually disagrees with that. Instead, exercise can be one of the most beneficial things we can do. It’s common for it to be uncomfortable at first, but if the person trusts the process and works on it, typically for at least 12 sessions, it will improve and begin making progress.

Iam not agree if walking can exercise for arthritis knee because walking can big compres knee joint

Vivian Astridge says:

Most or perhaps all physios prescribe walking for OA sufferers. I fail to understand the rationale behind this. Arthritis has already destroyed the cartilage and there is nothing but bone on bone contact. From strictly a non medical point of view, walking can only further damage the knee and erode the bone leading to total incapacitation. Please be kind enough to clarify how walking helps with knee arthritis. Thank you sincerely.

Oh great .. exercise and it’s okay if the pain worsens till the next day … so my only living will be when I exercise and then sitting on the sofa cause my knees hurt so much after exercise I can’t walk at all .. and you hit the mark when you said “cost effective “ it’s all about the $$$ not about my pain level or what I can do .. typical… these “specialist” have obviously never had bad knee arthritis ..

Lisa Keller says:

Hi there,
I am a postal carrier and have meniscus tears in both my left and right knee along with severe arthritis in the right and mild in the left. These exercises look really good and believe they would be very helpful to build strength. How many reps of each would you recommend? Have to be careful because I also have herniated discs in my neck…my duties as a letter carrier and several bad falls on the job have caused many work injuries.

Kathy Clark says:

Well, don't know about the squats but the others I could. Calve raises really good. Did those this AM
