What did I do?
I investigated the impact of exercise on knee joint articular cartilage. This aim was investigated in three different systematic reviews (SRs) of randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in healthy animals and in humans at risk of or with knee osteoarthritis (OA).

Why did I do it?
Exercise is the first-line treatment for knee OA.1 Yet, many people still believe that exercise may ‘wear down my knee’ creating a barrier to exercise.
