Staying active is the first line of treatment
Research shows that hip and knee osteoarthritis sufferers who take part in supervised exercise and education programmes benefit from reduced pain, improved physical function, more physical activity and better quality of life. The reliance on painkillers and sick leave is also reduced. And, the exercise also positively affects other chronic diseases and improves general health and wellbeing.
