ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a clinical study according to which both aerobic and home-based quadriceps strengthening exercises reduce pain and disability in knee osteoarthritis. The study explored whether in patients with knee osteoarthritis, aerobic exercise is effective for reducing pain and disability. 13 RCTs met the selection criteria. One RCT compared aerobic exercise with home-based quadriceps strengthening exercise. The study concluded that in patients with knee osteoarthritis, both aerobic walking and home-based quadriceps strengthening exercises reduce pain and self-reported disability.
