I agree with the authors’ thoughts that neuromuscular retraining is an important method of exercise for patients with knee osteoarthritis. NEMEX was the exercise method used in this study which aims at "restoring neutral functional alignment of the lower extremities by obtaining compensatory functional stability and improving sensorimotor control.” I looked into NEMEX further and it consists of a warm-up followed by four exercises emphasizing core stability/postural function; postural orientation; lower extremity muscle strength; functional exercises and a cool down. Assessing the specific exercises, there was no mention of gait evaluation and/or retraining.
My question for the authors: What made you decide on the NEMEX exercise method?
My question for the experts: Do you think gait retraining is a valuable component when managing knee OA, both non-operatively and post-operatively?
