Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of standard physical therapy and an internet-based exercise program for people with knee osteoarthritis (OA). Both of these programs will be compared to a "waiting list" control group. The investigators hypothesize that both treatments will result in greater improvement than the control condition and that the treatments will be similarly effective. The investigators also expect that some patients may do better with one treatment type or another and will explore this.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - Knee Osteoarthritis Exclusion Criteria: - no internet access - rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or any other rheumatic condition - severe fibromyalgia - gout in your knees - on a waiting list for joint replacement surgery, or are you planning to have joint replacement surgery during the next year - total knee replacement surgery, other knee surgery, a torn meniscus in your knee, or a torn ACL in your knee during the past 6 months - hospitalized for a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, or had surgery for blocked arteries in the past 3 months - currently undergoing physical therapy for knee OA - meeting current recommendations for physical activity levels - participating in another interventional study related to knee osteoarthritis or a study that involves physical activity
