Osteoarthritis exercises made easy with this video

Font Size:

Osteoarthritis (OA) affects about 60 per cent of Australians aged over 55 and treatment of the problem has recently undergone a radical change. Surgery is out and regular exercise and weight management are in.

Physiotherapist Jason Lee has filmed a short video for sufferers in which he demonstrates four very simple exercises that can assist sufferers living with OA. He focuses on the glutes, thighs and calves to promote balance and flexibility.

Of course, watching the video is one thing, and doing the exercises several times a day is another. But he says you should be assured that the exercises will make a difference. Good luck.

Are you troubled by osteoarthritis? Have you found specific exercises to be helpful?

    Sounds great, but could be difficult to even start exercising if in near constant pain. We are also wondering WHY local organisations such as with Jason are not looking at low cost, safe, easy to use technologies that are used in hospitals overseas and found to be reducing Osteoarthritis for around 95% of their patients? Are we just stuck in the “Do as we always do so we can get what we have always got” or is modern technology to hard to understand? in Australia?

    Stop consuming dairy, it is a myth that it helps your bones, it is actually the reverse.

    I have and try to do these exercises as recommended by my physiotherapist after having a hip replacement. Great if you can do yoga but of us cannot for physical reasons.
