Abstract: The arthrosic disease, the most common chronic osteoarticular disorder, represents a health and social problem in all countries, on account of both clinical and radiological discrepancy and of increased social and economic costs. The main joints of the lower limb: hip, knee and ankle are the bearing joints; they support the upright body position, as high mechanical pressure is exerted on them. The goal of the osteoarthritis treatment consists in pain elimination, mobility improvement, stability increase in the affected joints and disease progression prevention. Rehabilitation must be adapted to the evolution stage of the disorder; it comprises several methods: patient education, kinetotherapy, hydrokinetotherapy, massage therapy, electrotherapy, thermotherapy, balneotherapy and occupational therapy. In order for the rehabilitation treatment to be successful, patients’ involvement in the therapeutic process is mandatory; thus, hygienic-dietary lifestyle and a recommended physical therapy program should be respected throughout entire life.
