BACKGROUND Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a major public health issue because it causes chronic pain, reduces physical function and diminishes quality of life. Ageing of the population and increased global prevalence of obesity are anticipated to dramatically increase the prevalence of knee OA and its associated impairments. No cure for knee OA is known, but exercise therapy is among the dominant non-pharmacological interventions recommended by international guidelines. OBJECTIVES To determine… Expand
Exercise for hand osteoarthritis.
TLDR
The overall quality of the body of evidence was downgraded to very low owing to potential detection bias, lack of blinding of participants on self-reported outcomes, and imprecision for quality of life, adverse events and withdrawals due to adverse events. Expand
Exercise interventions and patient beliefs for people with hip, knee or hip and knee osteoarthritis: a mixed methods review.
TLDR
There were large variations in the exercise programme's content, mode of delivery, frequency and duration, participant's symptoms, duration of symptoms, outcomes measured, methodological quality and reporting. Expand
Aquatic exercise for the treatment of knee and hip osteoarthritis.
TLDR
There is moderate quality evidence that aquatic exercise may have small, short-term, and clinically relevant effects on patient-reported pain, disability, and QoL in people with knee and hip OA. Expand
Applying the Evidence for Exercise Prescription in Older Adults with Knee Osteoarthritis
TLDR
This narrative review is to identify exercise options and dosage parameters to aid the clinician in assisting individuals with knee OA, which work to improve the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems to improve function. Expand
Clinical osteoarthritis of the hip and knee and fall risk: The role of low physical functioning and pain medication.
TLDR
Individuals with clinical knee OA were at increased risk for recurrent falls, mediated by pain medication, particularly opioids, which needs to be considered when discussing the risk benefit ratio of prescribing these medications. Expand
Pain and functional trajectories in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis over up to 12 weeks of exercise exposure.
TLDR
Four distinct trajectories for pain and function over up to 12-weeks of exercise interventions are found to help disentangle the heterogeneity of treatment response and may advance patient-centered care in knee OA. Expand
Exercise in osteoarthritis: moving from prescription to adherence.
TLDR
It is important to note that while the magnitude of exercise benefits may be considered small to moderate, these effects are comparable to reported estimates for simple analgesics and oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for OA pain but exercise has much fewer side effects. Expand
The effect of exercise therapy on knee adduction moment in individuals with knee osteoarthritis: A systematic review.
TLDR
The lack of knee adduction moment reduction indicates that exercise therapy may not be protective in knee osteoarthritis from a joint loading point of view and alterations in neuromuscular control may contribute to alter dynamic joint loading following exercise therapy. Expand
The role of muscle strengthening in exercise therapy for knee osteoarthritis: A systematic review and meta-regression analysis of randomized trials.
TLDR
Exercise interventions following the ACSM criteria for strength training provide superior outcomes in knee extensor strength but not in pain or disability, according to the meta-regressions. Expand
A walking program for people with severe knee osteoarthritis did not reduce pain but may have benefits for cardiovascular health: a phase II randomised controlled trial.
TLDR
Patients with severe knee OA prescribed a 12-week walking program of 70 min/week may have had cardiovascular benefits without decreasing knee pain, according to protocol analysis based on participant adherence. Expand

Which patientswith osteoarthritis of hip and/or knee benefit most from behavioral graded activity?
TLDR
Compared to UC, BGA is the preferred treatment option in patients with a low level of physical functioning, and beneficial effects of BGA in Patients with a relatively high level of internal locus of control were marginally significant. Expand
Effectiveness of Manual Physical Therapy and Exercise in Osteoarthritis of the Knee
TLDR
The hypothesis was that physical therapy consisting of manual therapy to the knee, hip, ankle, and lumbar spine combined with range-of-motion, strengthening, and cardiovascular exercises would be more effective for improving function, decreasing pain and stiffness, and increasing the distance walked in 6 minutes.

TLDR
It is concluded that patients with OA knee can be helped most economically by one session of advice and a functional home exercise regime. Expand

TLDR
The self-management program for patients with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee was reasonably effective, but more attention should be paid to proactive followup interventions and to the selection of participants. Expand

TLDR
Compared with no intervention, a 6-week program of aquatic physical therapy resulted in significantly less pain and improved physical function, strength, and quality of life. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that a simple home-based exercise therapy and a regular walking program are effective in treating the symptoms of OA. Expand

TLDR
Physical therapy, either as an individually delivered treatment or in a small group format, is an effective intervention for patients with knee OA. Expand
