The Osteoarthritis (OA) Action Alliance is committed to providing resources to assist with osteoarthritis prevention and control efforts.

Our resources are centered around the four interventions strategies to address OA. Some of these strategies focus on the symptoms while others have the potential to prevent the disease.

Self-management education and physical activity, focus primarily on reducing the symptoms and progression of OA for those who have the disease, while injury prevention and weight management, may prevent OA from occurring. Combined, these strategies have the potential to improve quality of life for those with OA and reduce the national burden.
