Abstract

Osteoarthritis is one of the most common agerelated chronic diseases and often presents with the primary symptoms of joint pain and stiffness.Regular exercise has been associated with improved function and decreased pain. However,
sedentary behaviour is higher for older adults with osteoarthritis and pain is the key barrier to landbased exercise. Water-based exercise (aqua
exercise) offers an environment where the joints are supported and exercise may be performed with less discomfort.
