Abstract

Knee Osteoarthritis, Obesity and Exercise Therapy-A Complex Issue

Knee osteoarthritis, a widespread disabling arthritic condition with no known cure is commonly associated with obesity, although whether this is a cause or consequence of the disease is unclear. Exercise is universally acknowledged as a remedy for both weight control and for osteoarthritis selfcare purposes. But in our view, simply hoping the obese knee osteoarthritic patient will be inclined to follow recommendations to exercise is highly presumptive and problematic.
