Health Tip: If You've Got Knee Arthritis

Health Tip: If You've Got Knee Arthritis

12/07/12

(HealthDay News) -- Arthritis in one or both knees can make it painful and difficult to bend, run or walk.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers these suggestions to help ease knee arthritis pain and discomfort:

  • Lose any excess weight to ease strain and stress on the knees.
  • Get plenty of regular exercise.
  • Undergo physical therapy.
  • Switch from high-impact exercise such as running to low-impact exercise such as walking or swimming.
  • Use a supportive device, such as energy-absorbing shoes, a brace or a cane.
