Knee osteoarthritis is a leading cause of pain and incapacity. Exercise is always advised for individuals with knee osteoarthritis because it can reduce pain, enhance function, build muscle, and improve quality of life.

A randomised trial of individuals with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis showed that a 12-week online yoga programme improved knee function in subjects.

However, the training had no discernible effect on knee pain while walking. The research was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

Knee osteoarthritis is a leading cause of pain and incapacity. Exercise is always advised for individuals with knee osteoarthritis because it can reduce pain, enhance function, build muscle, and improve quality of life.

Yoga, a growingly well-liked low-impact activity that combines both static and dynamic postures with mindfulness techniques, may be helpful for patients with knee osteoarthritis.

However, there is some evidence that yoga programmes administered through supervised in-person group classes can improve knee stiffness, function, and pain in people with knee osteoarthritis.

The University of Melbourne researchers randomly allocated 212 adults with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis to either an unsupervised 12-week online yoga programme with an education component or online education only.

Then, 12 and 24 weeks after starting the programme, they looked at how the knee pain and physical function had changed.

The researchers discovered that yoga participants successfully finished two-thirds of the programme and reported improved knee function and reduced difficulties with function compared to education-only participants.

However, both groups reported comparable knee discomfort while walking. The authors remark that knee function gains were not maintained during the optional 12-week period following the initial required treatment.

The authors say that their results show that an unsupervised online yoga programme is possible and that the physical function of the people who took part in the programme improved after 12 weeks.

The improvement, though, was quite slight and short-lived. They suggest conducting more study to boost and maintain the effectiveness of online yoga sessions.
