My knee hurts too much to exercise.  This is a common catch-22 for people suffering with knee osteoarthritis.

Some people with OA in their knees have to deal with a host of painful issues: limited range-of-motion, knee pain, stiffness, functional difficulties, and sensory abnormalities.  These knee problems often prevent people with OA from exercising.

Physical therapists are trained to design treatment programs to overcome these obstacles and help people with osteoarthritis achieve the best results possible from an exercise or physical activity program.
