Purpose: To study the effects of two different rehabilitation programs for people with osteoarthritis of the hip or knee.
Hypothesis 1: Participants who received Activity Stratgey Training will report less pain and physical disability at 8-weeks and 6-months follow-up.
Hypothesis 2: Participants who receive Activity Strategy Training will have a greater increase in physical activity as measured by a wrist-worn accelerometer.
Hypothesis 3: Participants who receive Activity Stratgey Training will report greater improvements in health-related quality of life.

Active Comparator: 1
Exercise + Education: Eight group sessions (8-15 people) during which participants engage in muscular strength and flexibility exercises. In addition, weekly educational lectures on topics germane to osteoarthritis management are included.
The health education program is based on educational materials from the Arthritis Foundation.
Exercise + Activity Strategy Training: 7/8 sessions will be in a group format in which participants engage in muscular strength & flexibility exercises and listen to education lessons on management strategies for osteoarthritis. The remaining session includes a home assessment by an occupational therapist to facilitate adequate participation in daily living and leisure activities.
Behavioral: Activity Strategy Training
The AST component will involve training in specific behavioral and environmental strategies to facilitate performance in daily activities and routines. The activity strategy training group sessions will use education, group discussion, and demonstration and practice of techniques to facilitate activity performance. Homework assignments will be given after many of the sessions to practice and reinforce concepts learned.
