A 65 yo woman was diagnosed 5 years ago with osteoarthritis in her knees following an xray that had been done after she had fallen on a hiking trip. Before the trip, she had walked regularly, played tennis, and gone backpacking with her family. Following the injury, she had limited physical activity in order to avoid pain and in the belief that rest would protect her knees from further damage. Over the past several years, she noticed increased knee stiffness in the morning and after prolonged periods of sitting. Pain has increased from mild discomfort after strenuous activity to moderate to severe pain with stair climbing, squatting, and arising from a chair.
Her laboratory data:
Weight 170 pounds
Resting HR 80 bpm
Resting Blood Pressure 160/90
BMI 30.2 kg/m2
Decreased range of motion with knee flexion, hip extension, ankle dorsiflexion.
Decreased strength with knee flexion and extension, hip abduction, and ankle dorsiflexion.
