How to Exercise if you have Knee Arthritis

How to Exercise if you have Knee Arthritis
A common question I receive from patients with knee osteoarthritis is how can they exercise. Meaning if they’re having pain, what can they actually do to continue to stay physically active. There are two aspects to question and problem. The first is if a goal is to stay significantly functionally active and physically active, then whatever physical activity you can do that is not causing pain in the knee,  you should absolutely continue to do.
Number two it is really important to keep in mind that you want to be cautious and yet deliberate when it comes to physical activity when you have knee arthritis.  Cautious in the sense that if there are activities that cause more than a 2 out of 10 level of pain in the knee,  you want to make sure you’re not doing too much of that because it may actually be causing more damage and problems. Adjustments may involve  modifying your activity level by reducing the level of weight, difficulty, or duration. It may also mean altering your activity to something that does not require so much strain on the knee. Or lastly it may require changing your technique and the manner in which you are doing that activity.
Being deliberate about your activity is also very important mainly because there may be certain exercises that are painful or difficult to do at one stage of your condition. As you gain more strength and stability, you may be able to do some of those prior painful exercises in a cautious and focused fashion as strength and stability improve. So being cautious and deliberate is a really key part to exercising with knee arthritis as well.

Bracing for Knee Arthritis

Bracing for knee arthritis
A common treatment for knee arthritis includes bracing for the knee. Is that helpful and is it recommended? Partly it depends on the knee problem, but in general bracing can be helpful.
There are various different types of braces.  For example a compression brace can help in terms of pain relief. It’s a sleeve type brace that is usually comfortable and easy to wear.  It can help with some of the myofascial pain and soft tissue related pain around the knee due to the compression. In  addition if you have swelling, compression can help with that as well.
Compression braces do not offer significant structural support however. Osteoarthritis has a very significant component of instability and laxity in the ligaments and certain types of knee braces, in particular more rigid ones, can help in terms of instability as well. The rigidity of the brace is the benefit, but can also be less comfortable to wear.
In general knee bracing can be helpful in terms of knee osteoarthritis related pain.  It can offer stability and support, allow you to do more significant function, and reduce pain while you’re doing activity.  As such it’s a good low-risk modality to utilize in terms of knee pain relief, keep you functional, and keep you physically active.
