Knee Osteoarthritis Exercise Program

Knee Osteoarthritis Exercise Program

Starting 6TH OF July, OHS has put together an evidence-based exercise group for knee OA sufferers to manage knee OA, with the aim of improving your knee pain well enough to avoid or delay knee replacement surgery.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition that affects the whole joint including bone, cartilage, ligaments and muscles. Although often described as ‘wear and tear’, OA is now thought to be the result of a joint working actively to repair itself. It is this active process that initially causes the joint pain.

The knee is one of the most commonly affected joints in OA due to the amount of stress that goes through it when we walk, stand, climb stairs or run. Hence, it is important we learn how to manage knee OA effectively so that we can continue physical activities without affecting our quality of life.

According to the latest research out of the University of Melbourne, the main treatment options include:

  • Exercise and physical activity
  • Weight loss (if indicated)
  • Analgesics for short-term pain relief
  • Injections
  • Pain coping activities

Our Program

At OHS, we have put together an evidence-based exercise group for knee OA sufferers to manage knee OA, with the aim of improving your knee pain well enough to avoid or delay knee replacement surgery. The whole program consists of 14 sessions, conducted twice a week for 7 weeks by our physiotherapists. The first 2 sessions will include an initial assessment to find out about your condition, take some baseline measurements, and education on osteoarthritis and its whole treatment plan in detail. The next 12 sessions will be the exercise program that runs for an hour each, tailored at an intensity that suits each individual.
