Abstract
International guidelines recommend exercise to delay rapid progression of osteoarthritis (OA). Numerous studies have shown that land-based exercise regimes, when performed regularly, leads to an improvement in joint mobility and pain. In vivo models of OA mimic many of the parameters of post-traumatic human OA. Destabilization of the medial meniscus (DMM) in rodents results in progressive development of OA with cartilage damage, osteosclerosis, mild synovitis, ligament damage/calcification and osteophyte formation.
