I just got diagnosed with arthritis in my left knee. I also have fibromyalgia. So going to the physical therapist, they gave me exercises that made it hurt so bad I couldn't walk for 3 days! The dr gave me exercises that I can do at home at my own pace. Some of them are similar - just need to go easy. Heat before, ice after. I had lost 50 pounds, and met my goal, and have gained since then due to this knee pain, and not knowing what it was or if I was making it worse by exercising (which hurt so much, anyway). Now that I know what it is, and have meds for it, I need to regain about 20 of that back again!

I, too, have knee problems. My husband also has knee problems. We went to a physical therapist and got home exercises to strengthen his muscles around the knee. Bob notices less pressure on the knee and moves better.
Ask your doctor if possible. A few treatments with a physical therapist may be helpful with home exercise in mind and/or leading to a trainer. I'd start with Pt (ESPECIALLY IF INSURANCE COVERS IT).

My left knee is that of an 87 yo, my right knee is 47. Pre-workout Aleve or 800 mg of Motrin seems to do the trick. I brace it sometimes when I run but other than modifying squats, or lunges I don't change much...

I need help with what exercise I can do with knee arthritis. Is there a group that I might join in with? Thanks
