Knee Arthritis – Are you doing what YOU can?

2.2 million Australians are affected by osteoarthritis. Our health system is spending $2.1 billion per year on the condition, mostly on joint replacement surgery.  Have you been diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis? What were you told to do about it? Commonly, people with arthritis are advised to rest when they have pain, not stay active. They are frequently encouraged to take pain killers or referred to an orthopaedic surgeon. This leads to the person becoming increasingly inactive, potentially depressed, they gain weight and increase their risk of other chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Studies report that whilst surgery helps in the right person, in 2 out of 3 cases, completion of an exercise program guided by a physiotherapist will delay the need for joint replacement surgery by at least two years.  In fact, some people will never need surgery if they stay active! The Bottom Line: Exercise and regular physical activity is essential for treating osteoarthritis and managing chronic disease. So if you need help to get started and guided on the best exercises that you could be doing to help your knee pain and stiffness, make an appointment right now and take charge of your health!
