How to Exercise a Painful Knee

The thought of exercising an aching knee may sound painful, but gentle stretches can really help ease symptoms.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons explains how:

  • By strengthening surrounding muscles. This means better shock absorption, less pain and less risk of future injury.
  • By loosening tight muscles, which are more prone to injury
  • By enhancing flexibility in the knee, making the joint and surrounding muscles less sore.
