Low-impact exercise (i.e. walking, swimming, cycling, and elliptical trainer) along with proper strengthening and stretching exercises can be helpful for those with osteoarthritis of the knee. Managing your weight is also a key element to reduce pain and further deterioration. A recent study shows that arthroscopic knee surgery for people suffering from osteoarthritis doesn't reduce joint symptoms or improve function compared with other nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy and medication.
