Incidental Activity

Incidental activity- what are the benefits?

Incidental activity is any small activity that adds up across your day, for example, taking the stairs instead of the lift or walking instead of driving.

Incidental activity is beneficial for people with knee osteoarthritis as it will include weight-bearing activities that add to the nourishment of your knees as well as general health.

For people who are time poor, incidental activity can be a good way to squeeze in some health benefits if you aren’t going to have a chance to do a workout that day. Incidental activities are a way to move more than you otherwise would.
