What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a term that is used to decribe changes in joints. Changes in joint cartilage and surfaces happen, but are only part of the story. Most of what you see and feel is due to changes in tissues around your knee and hip, and how your brain and body responds.
It’s not true that OA always gets worse with age.
What has affected your knee or hip so far is not the most important thing. What matters is that there are many things you can do to improve your joint health, how it feels, and how well you can take part in life.
Our Hip & Knee OA program is here to equip you with the positive facts on OA, guide you on the things you can do to positively help yourself, empower you with our tailored exercise program that promotes healthy joints, and gives you 1:1 support along the way.

Myths about OA
These mythbusting facts are taking from / quote referecne
It can only get worse from here
Actually the news is better than you think!
Research shows that people who have OA can improve the health and function of their joint. They can also improve how they feel, and what they are able to do.
Not all OA gets worse over time.
My pain tells me how damaged my joint is
We now have a lot of new evidence around pain and what can play a role in it. Pain levels and joint changes often relate poorly to each other. No two people are the same.
Pain is influenced by much more than just your knee structure.
I've worn out my joint
Some cartilage loss is one part of OA, but this loss is not simply due to using the joint.
What’s more, pain or noises such as grinding are due to many factors other than cartilage and bones. Moving and load is essential to nourish your joint.
Using your joint is the best thing you can do for it.
I'd better be careful I don't wear it out
Being careful stops you from using the knee normally. It also stops you doing many of the things you love, or that bring you joy.
Ther good news is that it’s movement (not rest) that helps the knee or hip to stay healthy.
OA gets worse with age
This is not true! Research shows that OA can stay the same over long periods of time and symptoms can improve.
Having OA means I will need a joint replacement
Joint replacement is one option for some people with OA. You can do things that will decrease your chances of needing surgery. Only a small portion of people with OA need surgery.
