Osteoarthritis: Myths/Facts
  • A scan is required to diagnose osteoarthrtis ? NICE recommends to diagnose osteoarthritis clinically without imaging in people who are 45 or over and have activity-related joint pain and have either no morning joint-related stiffness or morning stiffness that lasts no longer than 30 minutes.
  • Exercise will further damage the joint ? In fact, exercises help to lubricate the joint and strengthen the muscles which eventually helps with symptoms of osteoarthritis.
