MAXIMUM TOLERATED DOSE OF WALKING FOR PEOPLE WITH SEVERE OSTEOARTHRITIS OF THE KNEE: A PHASE I TRIAL

Presenter: Wallis JA

This module addresses:

Question: How much walking can be safely tolerated for people with

severe knee osteoarthritis?

Conclusion: There is preliminary evidence that 70 minutes per week of

moderate intensity supervised walking was safe for people with severe

knee osteoarthritis; for higher doses there was a risk of exacerbating

knee pain.

Key Practice Points:

• Encouraging people with severe knee osteoarthritis to be active by

prescribing 70 minutes per week of walking may be done without

increasing short-term knee pain.

• It is not known if sustained levels of physical activity can lead to health

benefits without exacerbating knee pain in this population.
