ARTHRITIS: DID YOU KNOW?
EXERCISE AND INCREASED QUAD STRENGTH IMPROVE FUNCTION AND DECREASES PAIN WITHOUT THE NEED FOR SURGERY?
One of the best things you can do for osteoarthritis is get more exercise. This might sound a little counterintuitive, especially if you believe that exercise causes further degeneration. What we seen over the past few decades is that people who exercise more actually live longer, have less knee and back pain, and significantly better quality of life. Simply improving quadricep strength and overall leg strength can have a huge impact on how much knee pain one experiences.
