Abstract

Lifestyle changes are gaining increasing recognition in the management of osteoarthritis. In most guidelines advice on exercise and weight reduction is now given priority over pharmacological therapies. In view of the face validity, safety and cost-effectiveness of such measures this would seem appropriate. This chapter discusses the role of exercise therapy, weight reduction and footwear. The emphasis is on evidence for effectiveness, comparison of techniques available and maintenance of adherence with each lifestyle change. Because most of our knowledge surrounds management of knee osteoarthritis, this is the focus of our discussion, with reference being made to other sites as appropriate.
