Risk Factor - Sedentary Lifestyle

A sedentary lifestyle is a serious risk factor for developing knee osteoarthritis.  When you do not exercise your joints become stiff.  Joints require lubrication to function and exercise increases lubrication.  Also muscles become stronger when you exercise, they atrophy when you don’t.  The anatomy surrounding your knee must be strong to prevent and treat osteoarthritis.  A sedentary lifestyle can not only make your osteoarthritis worse but it can also lead to a host of other health problems.

If you don’t use it, you will lose it.
