These are a lot of great exercises. Thanks. I think it also helps to be able to see the exercise instead of just reading about it. Here's a great video that also demonstrates a few of these exercises: http://youtu.be/Qv9XGskry4M
When researching knee pain I found an interesting video on how foot alignment can affect the knees. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=playe r_embedded&v=qYLMO7jObug
This led me to do further research and I was able to find the website with all kinds of information on how fixing the problem in my feet can help my knees. http://hyprocure.com/what-is-talotarsal-di slocation/symptoms-secondary-condition s/common-secondary-conditions/knee-pain/

Invalids and seniors can benefit greatly from exercises that strengthen the knees. This is because they tend to remain immobile for long periods of time. When the body remains inactive for long periods of time it loses its balance, flexibility and strength. Gaining muscles in the body can take quite some time but losing them occurs much faster than most people realize. Simple knee strengthening exercise can greatly improve the flexibility of the knees for these two groups of people.
Good article. I had the same issue as others where the Celebrex ad blocked the content. When you create your webpages, do you take into account the way different browsers and screen sizes show the page?
I'd like a way to lind theke exercises to my workout schedule. Thanks.

good exercises to do except for the step up. If your knees are bad you shouldn't be stepping 24 inches up and down. Especially if you have cartilage issues. My last scope was the result of stepping down off a 12 inch step. Spent six months doing rehab and still wear a brace on that knee.
