    I'm diabetic with weak legs and these are the same exercise my visiting nurse gives me,and it really works now I climb a three foot ladder. - 2/20/2012 11:51:54 PM

    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. - 2/20/2012 2:20:17 PM
  • Or a link to show a demonstration and the ability to add them to my exercises. - 2/20/2012 7:50:51 AM

    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 ....at 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
