RN Poll: Exercise in Knee OA

As you know, the evidence for a benefit of exercise in knee OA is strong. Guidelines from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), the American College of Rheumatology (ACR), and the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) all recommend that patients with knee OA undertake some form of regular low-impact exercise, to reduce pain and stiffness and increase physical function.

Which of the following exercises do you most often recommend to patients? (Choose one.)

Swimming
Walking outdoors
Walking uphill on a treadmill
Walking on a flat treadmill
Using an elliptical trainer
Bicycling
Weight training
Leg lifts and squats for quadriceps strengthening
Balance training
I refer all knee OA patients to physical therapy for advice about exercise
