    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have oa in my knee from a break at age 3. My hip has been recently diagnosed with oa as well. I have sustained an injury in that as well in high school that never healed properly. Both on the right side. I have gained weight over the years and am currently dieitng. In the midst of a flare up I asked for another appointment hoping for some new exercise tips or physical therapy. I now have a list of exercises I can take him! Thank you! I have gotten my calories under control through the help of my dietician ( my cousin ) I am ready to move on past walking. anyhow just wanted to say thanks and I am just jabbering.
