Balance Can Help Knee OA

June 9, 2012

Knee function can be improved with better balance.  Not only that, but muscle strength and the physical activities of daily living can also get better with improved balance.

Just about any undertaking that keeps a person up and moving, like walking, can help maintain and improve balance.  Specific exercises to improve balance can easily be added to an exercise routine.   A person can balance on one foot while watching television or while waiting for the subway.  Standing up and sitting down without hands can also strengthen legs and improve balance.

Improving balance can help knee osteoarthritis, and reduce the risk of falling.
