Yes, given less walks: Knee arthritis often limits the amount of distance a patient can walk. The muscles in the lower leg help get fluid from the leg back to the heart and require a good amount of walking ideally at least 2500 steps a day. Otherwise, fluid can pool around the ankle. Also since arthritis goes all over the body an exam by Podiatry to check for ankle arthritis or sprain is indicated. PT or taping can help.

I strongly advice you have your feet evaluated for proper foot alignment and evaluation of your arch, whether you land on the inside, outside or dead on mid foot. You'll be amazed how many problems can be avoided by wearing the correct brand of running shoe for you. I walk/jog 45 mins a day, the shoe makes a big difference!See 1 more doctor answer

It can be...: Aspirin certainly can be helpful for arthritis pain. Depending on the severity of the pain and whether it is contant or intermittent pain you may need something more regularly.

You might try Glucosamine and Cod LIver Oil.
