OA of the knees comes in all shapes and forms. Squatting deep or compressive loads such as barbell squats should be avoided based on biomechanics. OA clients need TLC, to improve their tight quads and hip flexors and ITB. Strengthening the glutes, glute max, core and using aqua therapy is soo relaxing and analgesic(feels good), yoga as able and stretching post working out.
Don’t forget the recumbent bike and gradual integration to the eliptical are all excellent training interventions!!!!!!!!!
