Abstract: Background: Knee OA is ranked as the 11th highest contributor to global disability and more than half of all persons with symptomatic knee OA are younger than 65 years of age. In the setting of other chronic conditions (non-communicable diseases (NCD)), OA is largely underdiagnosed and undertreated. Care received by individuals with OA in primary care settings is variable and often inconsistent with clinical practice guidelines. Physical activity (PA): Given the evidence for effectiveness, feasibility and safety, PA should be an integral part of standard care for people with knee OA. Health care providers should plan and deliver PA interventions that include the behavioral change techniques self-monitoring, goal-setting, action planning, feedback and problem solving. Exercise: Recommendations for exercise are aerobic activity, muscle strength and movement/stretching. However, in the last 5 years, literature reported a new type of exercise: Neuromusuclar exercise. The effectiveness of neuromuscular exercise is confirmed in knee injury prevention and knee injury treatment and is now under evaluation in OA prevention/treatment. Measures: The most important constructs behind the chosen measures are pain, physical function/activity and quality of life. It is highly recommended to use patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) as well as performance-based measures.
