I just completed the GLAD OA Knee and Hip Certification. This is the latest and best research based management program for OA knees and Hips. This is a 6 week program proven to either avoid or delay total knee and hip replacements.

Evidence Based Practice
Total Knee Arthroplasty/Replacement
Only 2% of people with arthritis get TKA's. They work best with those that have severe/end stage OA in the knee and are less effective in mild to moderate cases.
Acute Knee Management Protocol
Up to date researched protocol from UWO. It describes general instructions after an acute knee injury with evidence based information in an easy to understand format.
LOW BACK PAIN IN CYCLING: DOES IT MATTER HOW YOU SIT?
Over flexed posture in cyclists is associated with a significant increase of LBP. These findings suggest that in this subgroup low back pain during cycling is related to maladaptive lower lumbar kinematics.http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/48/7/609.2
Arthroscopic surgery for degenerative knee arthritis and meniscal tears: a clinical practice guideline
Arthroscopic knee surgery for degenerative knee arthritis does not, on average, result in an improvement in long term pain or function. Most patients will experience an important improvement in pain and function without arthroscopy. However, in <15% of participants, arthroscopic surgery resulted in a small or very small improvement in pain or function at 3 months after surgery, this benefit was not sustained at 1 year. http://bjsm.bmj.com/content/52/5/313
Effectiveness for PRP (plasma rich platelets) and Synvisc (viscosupplementation)
Studies from 2017 show that there may be some benefit to PRP for knee and tennis elbow injuries however the results are inconsistent and thus inconclusive. Studies for viscosupplementation on hip and knee OA show that there may be some benefit and there does not appear to be any adverse effects.
