What are the treatment options?
Regular exercise is essential for patients with osteoarthritis. This helps to keep muscles stronger and joints more supple. Exercise can be difficult or painful if joints are stiff and aching. A physiotherapist can design an exercise program to help you increase mobility and coordination, strengthen muscles and improve your overall condition. After a while, patients can continue the exercise program independently. Physiotherapy may also be combined with treatment for pain.
