Osteoarthritis (OA) Knee

Anyone who is diagnosed with knee OA will be invited to attend a group session.

You will be taught techniques to modify activities to protect the joint and physical ways of controlling the pain. This includes teaching you how and when to exercise and techniques to help reduce the pain. This approach is effective in improving your confidence in your ability to manage your arthritis. It has been shown to decrease visits to the GP and even reduce the need for pain relieving medication. This is followed by four weekly exercise sessions in the physiotherapy gym. For some people this approach can delay or reduce the need for knee replacement surgery.
