Default osteoarthrosis

Just discovered that i have osteoarthrosis at the grand old age of 44 !

Jumping out of helicopters with your weight in kit doesnt do your hips and knees much good !!

Anyone had any (successful) treatment ?

Physiotherapy, followed by physiotherapy. After all that, you might care to try physiotherapy. There are also a few exercises you can do to keep the joints supple and loose, but to learn what they are, you need a physiotherapist........

A rub-in cream or gel, like Biofreeze or similar, is a great relief but is only short-lasting.........

Warning: after using Biofreeze, wash your hands thoroughly - do NOT go for a pee without doing this.............

Leave the jumping out of helicopters to the young braves. Join the elders in a desk job.

If it's knees - you might look at micro fracture techniques... (disclaimer - I'm not a doctor)

Keep active! Swimming is a good option because you get a cardio work out as well as muscle toning but without putting too much strain on your joints. Cycling is also a good one because it works your CV fitness but, again, is non weight bearing so wont put too much shock on your hips or knees like running does.

Here are the exercise guidelines from the ACSM for people with OA if you are interested. Skip to page three for exact recommendations:

Thanks for the tips - the quacks have recommended some painkillers and inflamination tabs.

Is rowing considered beneficial? I have some minor knee joint issues and some lower back wear that I am told are both helped by plenty of the bending and forward/backward type movements found in rowing.
