What are the benefits of exercise?
When it comes to osteoarthritis of the knee, regular movement helps to strengthen the muscle around the knee.
Moreover, exercise helps to improve your posture and to lose weight, thereby putting less pressure on the joints.
One activity to consider is hydrotherapy, otherwise known as aquatic therapy, which is where you get the muscles and joints working in a heated pool.
The pool is warmer than a regular swimming pool, so it can be “soothing and relaxing”.
