3 Types of Exercises for People with OA


Regular but well tolerated physical activity is key if you suffer from Osteoarthritis of the knee, hip, or shoulder!

**Consult with an expert provider before beginning any exercise program.**

There are 3 types of exercise that are important for people with osteoarthritis of the knee, hip or shoulder:

  • Strengthening exercises to increase muscle strength and help protect your joints.

  • Aerobic exercise to improve the health of your heart and circulation and to control your weigh.

  • Range-of-motion exercises to help reduce stiffness and develop proper joint flexibility and movement.

Note: If exercise is too painful, you may be doing an ill-advised program or exercise routine. Stop immediately and get some professional guidance. You may benefit from a formal program of professionally guided physical therapy or other medical procedures to help.
