Walking and Running with Knee Osteoarthritis: Reclaim Your Movement


Living with knee osteoarthritis (OA) can be challenging, especially when it comes to activities like walking and running. The fear of pain and further damage may cause many individuals to avoid these activities altogether. As an expert in regenerative medicine and holistic pain relief, I’m here to provide you with reassuring answers and guidance. At East Village Physical Medicine (EVPM), we believe that movement is essential for overall health and well-being. In this blog post, we will explore the safety of walking and running with knee OA and discuss how EVPM can help you get back on your feet, pain-free.

The Safety of Walking and Running with Knee Osteoarthritis:

One common misconception about knee OA is that walking and running can exacerbate the condition or lead to further damage. While it’s true that high-impact activities can put stress on the knee joints, it doesn’t mean you have to give up on walking or running entirely. In fact, engaging in these activities can be beneficial for maintaining joint flexibility, strengthening supporting muscles, and improving overall mobility.

At EVPM, we believe in an individualized approach to knee OA management. Our experienced team will carefully assess your condition, taking into account the severity of your OA, your overall health, and your personal goals. We will work closely with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that includes a combination of regenerative therapies, pain management techniques, and lifestyle modifications to ensure your safety and optimize your ability to walk and run comfortably.
