Osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis that mainly affects the knees and hips. It is a chronic condition in which the cartilage in the knee or hip continues to break down, leading to pain, stiffness and limitation of mobility. 

Many people think that hip or knee osteoarthritis only occurs in older people, but that is not the case. While it is true that the risk of hip or knee osteoarthritis increases as we age, it can also occur in younger people as a result of an accident or illness. 

One of the most important ways to manage knee osteoarthritis is to perform regular physical therapy exercises that aim to strengthen the knees and hips. This can help reduce stress on the knees or hips and improve mobility. It is also important to adopt healthy habits, such as eating a healthy diet and limiting tobacco and alcohol use. 

There are various treatments available for hip or knee osteoarthritis, depending on the severity of the condition. Physiotherapy can help reduce pain and improve mobility of the hip or knee joint through exercises and techniques to strengthen the muscles around the joint. These exercises can also help reduce the risk of falls, which is important because osteoarthritis in the hip or knee is often associated with reduced balance. 

Additionally, physical therapy can also help develop an exercise program tailored to the patient's specific needs. This can ensure that the patient is able to continue exercising in a safe and effective manner, which in turn can help to improve the quality of life.
