Guided exercises, like the ones received here, have been proven by research as an effective treatment method for hip and knee osteoarthritis. Joint Academy's exercise program is designed to help strengthen the muscles necessary to stabilize and protect your painful hip or knee joint. In addition, as your muscles strengthen, the cartilage (material covering the surface of the joints, which acts as a shock absorber and allows for smooth sliding/gliding of the joint) is stimulated to repair itself. Also worth considering, is not all types of strength and activity are the same when addressing osteoarthritis. Highly active individuals may inadvertently miss strengthening the specific muscles needed to achieve relief from their joint pain.
