Physical activity level is measured at baseline and after 3 and 12 months after structured information and individually adapted exercise for patients with osteoarthritis in hip or knee.
The hypothesis of this study is that a supported self management of osteoarthritis program will increase the level of physical activity in patients with osteoarthritis in hip or knee. The second hypothesis is that patients with osteoarthritis in knee will increase their level of physical activity more than patients with osteoarthritis in hip.

|Supported self-management of osteoarthrits program||
Behavioral: A supported self management of osteoarthritis program
Three theoretical sessions, each of about 90 minutes, held as group sessions with about 10 participants in each group. After the intervention patients are offered an individual exercise program, and the opportunity to practice this program together with others under supervision of a physical therapist for 6 weeks.
- Level of physical activity [ Time Frame: 12 month ]
Level of physical activity will be monitored by an accelerometer at baseline and at 3 and 12 months after the supported self-management of osteoarthritis program using an accelerometer. The GT1M Actigraph is a small uniaxial accelerometer that measures vertical acceleration and deceleration. Accelerometer output is an activity "count" which is the weighted sum of the number of accelerations measured over a period (e.g. in this case 10 seconds).
Participants will be instructed to wear the accelerometer from morning, and continuously (except for water activities) until going to bed at night, for seven consecutive days. The accelerometer will be attached to a belt to wear around the waist with accelerometer placement on the right hip.
