Abstract

Ironically, patients with osteoarthritis are often advised to do some walking or low-impact exercises to improve conditioning and reduce their weight. However, since pain after activity is the principal symptom of osteoarthritis, using the affected joint may be one of the last things a patient with hip or knee osteoarthritis wants to do. In this article, the authors summarize methods to manage the discomfort of osteoarthritis so patients can continue the most active lifestyle possible.
