From the Exercise and Physical Activity in Aging Conference (ExPAAC): Blending Research and Practice.

Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of restricted physical activity and disability in the United States. Even when OA is not the primary diagnosis or reason for referral, it is a common complication in attempts to increase physical activity. The safety and benefit of exercise for this population have been demonstrated repeatedly in clinical trials; however, individual response to various types of exercise is extremely variable.

This presentation will discuss current knowledge regarding exercise recommendations with respect to:

a) Individual and disease characteristics

b) Educational strategies to improve functional outcomes

c) Discuss current knowledge regarding exercise recommendations for individuals with osteoarthritis including educational strategies to improve functional outcomes.
