OA Lifestyle

OA Lifestyle

This is a continuation of our series of articles from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons’ Full Guideline for the Treatment of Knee Osteoarthritis.

Recommendation I – The AAOS suggests patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis take part in self-management educational programs and incorporate activity modifications into their lifestyle.

The evidence shows that self-management results in pain relief.  Making changes like walking instead of running, losing weight, and various lifestyle modifications will make knees feel better.
