The purpose of this ongoing study is to test the effect of isometric strength training versus dynamic strength training versus a control condition on the knee pain among patients with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. 18, 23 and 26 subjects with knee OA were randomized into the dynamic, isometric and control groups respectively. The two intervention groups engaged in strength training of lower limbs three times per week for 16 weeks using elastic resistance. Prior to and following completion of these protocols each subject completed an assessment of their knee pain. Pain was measured using a 10cm VAS immediately following descending/ascending stairs and getting up and down off of the floor. Pain was also assessed using the pain subscale of the WOMAC and the body pain subscale of the MOS-36. These data were addressed using repeated measures ANOVA with significance set at .05. The dynamic strength training group demonstrated significant declines in their pain during each of the four functional tasks. The isometric strength training group demonstrated a trend or significant decline in their pain during each of the four functional tasks. The control group did not change their level of pain. Strength training appears to reduce OA knee pain.
