ABSTRACT
This article comments on a clinical study according to which both aerobic and home-based quadriceps strengthening exercises reduce pain and disability in knee osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis of the knee is very common as a third of elderly persons show radiographic evidence of knee osteoarthritis, and the prevalence is steadily rising with the increasing age of the population and the epidemic of obesity, 2 major risk factors. Although nonpharmacologic measures have long been a part of guidelines for treatment of knee osteoarthritis, the systematic review of RCTs is an important addition. Exercise has many additional benefits, not the least of which is a decreased incidence of disability in activities of daily living in older patients.
