Our 3-Step Knee Exercise Program features a combination of exercises used in a workout that produced positive results in 38 patients in a Tufts University study1 — involving a 16-week, home-based exercise program for men and women over 50 with knee osteoarthritis.
The 3-Step Knee Exercise Program involves three kinds of exercise that are very important for joint health:
Dr. Nelson and her team conducted the study with 46 men and women over 50 who already had moderate to severe osteoarthritis. The participants had pain almost every day of the week, and many of them had swollen, red knees that disrupted their active lives.
The study featured a home-based, progressive training program. It included a series of strength, flexibility and isotonic exercises — continuous, sustained movement of the arms and legs (e.g. aerobic exercises) aimed at improving cardio function — to help reinforce the muscles around the knee and relieve joint pressure, pain and irritation.
