When dealing with chronic pain, feelings of hopelessness are common. Surgery can seem like the only way out. Common thoughts include: "My joint is already damaged, there is nothing I can do about it" OR "My doctor told me my knee is so bad, there is no hope."
THERE IS HOPE.
Research shows that the better you can get at climbing up and down stairs and hills, the LESS overall pain you will have.

If you still don't think stair climbing can work wonders, take a look at what another study found. “There was consistent and convincing evidence that greater stair-climbing ability was related to stronger lower limb muscles and less knee pain.” How cool is that?! (Whitchelo et al. 2013)
So when you hear your friends or family asking "Is stair climbing bad for arthritic knees?" now you have an answer for them! NO because stair climbing can help make you feel invincible with knee arthritis.
This is true with those with moderate osteoarthritis and the side effects are dramatically LESS than surgery. The key is making sure your joints are ready for stairs with the exercises and information I want to give you in this program.
