Osteoarthrosis of knee a debilitating condition will come and stay with the aging process.The best way to beat it is by physiotherapy combined with on demand simple analgesics like paracetamol and etoricoxib.
So-many physiotherapies are described ,but by far swimming is the best.Swimming is the most energy consuming exercise.Combined with it a little diet modification in form of negative calorie balance will reduce weight of over weights/obeses to a great extent which in tern will relieve some weight off the knee joints.

While swimming water off loads weight from knees and at the same time gives resistance to knee movement thereby working at the joints to strengthen the muscles around the joints.Strengthening muscles give stability to the joint and flexibility to movement.
Do you know swimming ? If not learn the skill to-day.
