Knee Exercises and Strengthening for Arthritis
If you have knee arthritis, you need to strengthen all the muscles around the knee and the hip!
A pilot study showed that 4 weeks of strength training involving the hips can greatly reduce knee pain.
A randomized, controlled trial on hip strengthening showed it was effective for knee pain relief.
A 12-week quadriceps strengthening program in patients with arthritis helped relieved knee pain.
Dr. Paul’s Comments
Strengthen both your hip and knee to help relive arthritis pain.
Find a qualified sport physical therapist or athletic trainer to help you.
Just remember, its no pain when you train, not no pain no gain.
Whatever knee exercises you do, make sure this is done pain free!
