  • This is so true. I've managed to strengthen my knees enough that after years of constant spraining I'm not spraining easily anymore and I rarely even fall all the way down if I slip (exercise has given me enough muscle control to catch myself most of the time).
  • I can do these...thank you!

    Ditto a picture is so valuable
    I, too, would like a video, and if not at least pictures of what to do. A video would be perfect ..
  • Good info. But would like pictures to make sure I'm doing right. thanks
    I would like to print the article, is there a way I can?

    There are some great points here. I'm an active guy in his early 40's and already recovering from a knee surgery. Few things from my experience. Exercises and Physical Therapy is a MUST. Take it incredibly seriously, it will help you recover faster.

    The other thing is that you need a good knee brace for support and protection if you plan on being active. I got mine from and love it. It provides stability but also flexibility now that I am active again. Hope that helps!

    Uncertain about the exercises by reading. Pictures or video would surely help. Tq
  • I do wish there were pictures, I am not sure how some of these should be done.
  • Would love to see demonstrations of these exercises. I have trouble picturing many of them in my head:-) Thanks!
  • Thanks for sharing.
  • I would also suggest that people with knee pain get a regular massage, at least once a month, more if you are very active (a runner, cyclist etc). Keeping the surrounding muscles of the legs loose and flexible goes a long way to helping knee pain. Also use a form roller on your IT bands on the sides of your thighs, this also helps to keep knee pain away. Very painful but quite effective.
    question: the left side of my right knee is bone to bone. will these exercises help me with the constant pain in my right knee? thank you
    mmmmm. thAnks to all for advice, it is true that regular is best, slow is essential and not pushing too hard or being competitive either....I just have to go as far as my knees say........
    thanks for info. on sites - I will peruse at my leisure, and with pleasure and i am a poet and I did not know it!
    sometimes in bed - heart asthma attacks etc. so knees do get more stiff at those times, just coming out of scare and up gingerly - knees are very stiff and painful so I have joined in some of the wonderful chair exercises today, not too much - these are the sort of thing to build on slowly i think?
    All tips gratefully read and tried out carefully. Over-exercising causes mayhem too - the trick is to find my happy medium - weather etc. changes things - bit of a juggle but still walk with stick now though (falls) and just keep on going eh!
