Scientists from the University of Sydney in Australia analyzed 23 completed scientific studies involving 4,000 people. Experts have found that if normal walking is done incorrectly, it can lead to the development of osteoarthritis. Summarizing the research data showed that if the knee moves first outward and then inward when walking, the risk of exacerbation of osteoarthritis doubles.
Scientists are developing various rehabilitation programs and methods for preventing osteoarthritis to slow the progression of the disease. Various walking styles and their effects on joint health are also being explored.
