Moving more with knee and hip pain

Exercise has been shown to be effective for a vast range of knee and hip complaints. Improved movement, strength but more importantly pain and function has been demonstrated repeatedly once exercise is encouraged. Exercise is especially encouraged for those with osteoarthritis pains. Think of the body as a car: If it is not used it will ‘rust out’, not wearing out. Moving the joints keeps them lubricated, moving better, builds the strength and improves function

In order to help plan the next steps think about the following:

  • How would you like things to be different?
  • What have you tried before to make yourself feel better and in less pain?
  • What were the good things about what you tried previously and what are the less good things about it?
  • What will you do next?
