Osteoarthritis and Weight Management

A 2005 study in Arthritis & Rheumatism of overweight and obese adults with knee osteoarthritis found that losing one pound of weight resulted in four pounds of pressure being removed from the knees.” In other words, losing just 10 pounds would relieve 40 pounds of pressure from your knees. Stroma’s combination of hands on care and therapeutic exercises provides a sound equation to helping you ease pain and discomfort caused by arthritis symptoms. We are committed to helping patients be their best selves by setting attainable goals and supporting our patients. Please see the nutrition page in the services section for more information about weight management.
