The Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) has updated their guidelines for the non-surgical management of knee osteoarthritis. “Based on previous OA guidelines and a systematic review of the OA literature, 29 treatment modalities were considered for recommendation…Appropriate treatment modalities for all individuals with knee OA included biomechanical interventions, intra-articular corticosteroids, exercise (land-based and water-based), self-management and education, strength training, and weight management.” These guidelines will likely become freely available at http://www.oarsi.org/education/oarsi-guidelines.
