What are the Best Exercises for Knee OA?
I believe the people running this study had the therapy spot on. They include manual therapy (probably massage although not stated), as well as stretching and strengthening exercises for knee OA.
The outcome speaks for itself:
“In patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, a combination of manual physical therapy and stretching, range-of-motion, and strengthening exercises may yield improvements in functional ability as well as in subjective measures of pain, stiffness, and function and may delay or prevent the need for surgical intervention.These improvements may persist well after the conclusion of clinical treatment.”
