Changes in physical inactivity during supervised educational and exercise therapy in patients with knee osteoarthritis: A prospective cohort study

Bartholdy, C., et al.; The Knee

The objective of the study was to investigate changes in physical inactivity among individuals with knee OA following an educational and exercise program. A prospective cohort study was completed, comprised of 32 individuals with knee OA in Denmark who received eight weeks of physiotherapy-guided education and group-based or home exercise sessions. The primary outcome was time spent physically inactive (min/day), measured with a tri-axial accelerometer mounted on the lateral side of the thigh during the entire exercise program duration. OA symptoms were assessed using the Knee injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS). Results showed from baseline to post-intervention, no changes occurred in average time spent physically inactive, but statistically significant improvements in KOOS pain and KOOS function were found. The authors of the study concluded that participating and completing a widely adopted education and exercise program were not associated with spontaneous improvements in physical inactivity despite changes in self-reported pain and function.
