Key PointsQuestionHow does adding a 24-week self-directed strengthening exercise regimen and physical activity guidance supported by automated behavior-change text messages to web-based osteoarthritis (OA) information affect pain and function in people with knee OA? FindingsThis randomized clinical trial of 206 adults with a clinical diagnosis of knee OA found that a web-based exercise intervention supported by text messaging improved knee pain and function at 24 weeks compared with web-based information alone. MeaningThis freely available digital intervention is a useful and effective option for improving access to recommended OA exercise and/or supporting clinicians in providing exercise management to people with knee OA at scale across the population.
