International recommendations (ACR,EULAR) emphasize physical exercise and weight loss for patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis. Nevertheless, number of patients receiving advices for these 2 points still low. This study evaluates the impact of a standardized medical intervention (patient education, weight reduction and physical exercise) in knee osteoarthritis patients.

Transient reduction in blood pressure levels immediately after exercises that lasts 2-12 hours. The reduction varies but is typically 5-20 mm Hg when compared to pre-exercise levels.

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
