It is recommended for adults with OA to get 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic (walking, running, etc) and 2 days of muscle strengthening exercise per week to improve pain and function. Always consult with your healthcare provider before beginning any physical activity routine, especially if you have special issues or multiple chronic conditions.
