    these stretches are great -- use a dog lease versus a towel and get a real stretch .... or for about 20 get a stretch out strap with these types of exercises --- it's what you do in phy therapy least at the beginning - 11/13/2011 10:34:05 AM

    The stretches and exercises sound great. They would be better if pictures were included, I can't visualize the instructions. - 9/26/2011 8:56:16 AM
  • Excellent suggestions - thank you. - 9/25/2011 10:15:11 PM
  • I know it wasn't touched on in the article but I like to take glucosamine and chondritin tablets when my knees act up I think it helps. - 9/25/2011 2:21:46 PM
    I keep getting annoying ads that I can't get around when I try to click on the 'hot' links. I hope you can fix this problem as I am interested in finding out further information - 9/25/2011 10:36:07 AM
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you for posting this! - 9/25/2011 8:17:12 AM
  • I appreciated this article, I have already had my right knee totally replaced at age 49. I am working hard now to keep the original left one. I do feel that now that I have started working out and doing weight baring exercising, like walking on a treadmill and step ups. I already feel that I can move a lot easier. - 9/16/2011 3:52:02 PM
    No one has commented on this article in a while, so I thought I'd put this out there:

    The only exercise that I can find listed in the strength trainer is Step-Ups, unless the other exercises (and stretches) are listed under different names. That said, it would be really helpful to have demos of these exercises and stretches, and even *more* helpful to have a simple way to add them to training en mass. Would this be possible? - 8/2/2011 6:16:28 AM
  • Great article - I have had two knee surgeries, but only experience pain/stiffness when I take breaks from exercising. Good for people to know that exercising helps, doesn't hinder. Also - running is great for my knees! - 3/4/2011 3:02:29 PM
  • Loved the article and have started doing some of the suggested exercises. I wish the exercises were listed in the Fitness Tracker Strength Training so I could track them. The only one I found was the Step-Ups. - 2/23/2011 1:24:12 PM
  • Sooooo glad to find this article, it was very informative. I have OA in both knees, i am looking for improvment through diet and working out. with all the pain though we need to start out slowly - 1/20/2011 11:25:50 AM
  • My left knee was injured several years ago and I tend to experience pain during some of my more strenuous workouts. This article has provided me with some ideas on how to continue my workouts without stressing my knee. - 1/18/2011 2:09:00 PM
  • Glad to see some suggestions for improving knee-strength. After running my 1st 1/2 Marathon, the knees were the only trouble spot. I'll gladly try these out in preparation for the next big race this summer. - 1/10/2011 10:05:08 PM
  • I'm glad I found this article. For some reason, in the last week my knees have been giving me pain when I walk up stairs or even get in or out of a chair. They were weak before I started having pain so I think it is just being overweight and out of shape that is the problem. I was looking for something to help strengthen them. - 12/15/2010 6:39:38 PM
