Weight Loss and Exercise

                        Weight Loss and Exercise

Losing weight, exercising, and stretching are great treatment options for osteoarthritis of the knee.  Stretching keeps the muscles surrounding your knees loose and healthy, exercising lubricates the joints, and losing weight means your knees will absorb less of a load with every step you take.

You don’t need a prescription, or coverage, or a referral.  You don’t have to share any  personal information or pay a co-pay.  Weight loss, exercise, and stretching are free treatment options that will not only make your knees feel better but improve your overall physical condition.

Decrease the amount of drugs you take, spend less time with doctors….try going for a walk, or a swim.
