abstract
PURPOSE: Although moderate physical activity decreases the risk of arthritis-related disability by 47%, pain and lack of confidence are often cited barriers to physical activity participation among older adults with knee osteoarthritis (OA). The purpose of this study was to examine changes in self-efficacy over the course of the Intensive Diet and Exercise (IDEA) trial in obese older adults with knee OA.
