Managing Osteoarthritis / Knee Pain During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Ways to treat your knee pain right now:

  • Go for a walk (but maintain social distancing)! Low-impact exercise most often helps arthritic pain. It may seem counterintuitive, but it lubricates the bones with natural synovial fluid and allows easier glide within the joint space.
  • Stretch. Try a new yoga class online (even if its only ten or fifteen minutes), or call to request a home stretching routine that we can send to you.
  • Get good sleep. Studies show that decreased sleep can lead to an increase in perceived pain.
  • Call OPI. We are still open and would be happy to take care of you. We are now offering virtual appointments.
