People suffering from knee osteoarthritis must be assured that exercise prescribed to prevent or treat symptomatic knee OA is safe for articular cartilage.⁣

⁣ 🤷Based on misinformation, there is a common belief that exercise is harmful to cartilage. ⁣ ⁣ 🛌Instead of resting and avoiding activity, people with knee OA should be encouraged and supported to exercise and perform physical activity, which is essential for joint health & general wellbeing.⁣ ⁣ 🔥Exercise-induced pain flare-ups are expected when someone is new to exercise, but they should be reassured that pain will reduce and usually disappears over the exercise period.⁣ ⁣ 🏋️🚴Infact, the benefits of physical activity and exercise extend well beyond the improvements in pain, function, and quality of life in people with knee OA. ⁣ ⁣ ⚠️Make sure your exercise routine is well planned by a physiotherapist or an expert to avoid unwanted stress on the knees making the condition even worse.⁣ #daactarni

I have Achilles tendonitis. What exercise I can do to strengthen muscles around it? Because of that I am starting to get knee pain as well. I am doing calf stretching thrice a day, 30 secs each. It has been around a month but the pain doesn't seem to go away :(
