I notice a comment about focusing on strengthening the quads. My understanding is that we don't want to work the quads and neglect the hamstrings, as this will in fact put uneven pull on the knee. We need to work both, so that both are equally strong.

would like to see a video demonstrating these 11 tips. It's so much easier to do along with someone than written lists for me. But of course the written ideas are better than nothing. Thanks.

Thanks so much for this info. I've had knee pain for years due to a previous injury about 20 years ago.

Photos or a video would be a great addition so we know that we are doing them correctly!

Well, I'm afraid I'm one of the millions who suffer with knee pain. I'm always looking for good information and helps to keep my knees relatively strong. These exercises are really good. I agree, however, that some of them are a little bit confusing...the instructions for "knee flexion," "hamstring stretch," and "hamstring curl" were particularly hard for me to visualize. Most of them are fairly clear to me. (If I actually try to do them, they make more sense.)

As an aside, I rediscovered bicycling...hadn't done much since I was a kid...and I must say that my legs - knees included - are stronger than they've ever been before. I have a long way to go before my legs are Hollywood glamorous, but, well, I'm okay with that. :)

I just had knee surgery, meniscus tear, MCL damage, bone spurs and cartilage lesions. Some of these exercises are in my routine to do but modified. However, that's all I can do no other exercises allowed surgeon is afraid if I turn or jerk wrong I could do more damage. Sad to say I gained 4 pounds since this all started and I cut my calories to 1000 a day I just lay all day except when I exercise then I am in a recliner supporting the leg. The key is exercise to strengthen the Quad muscle this helps to support the knee and keeps it strong.

I agree that a video would help us do these right. I have both knees bone on bone on the inside. I find that walking on the treadmill at 1.8 mph or 2 mph helps with the pain.Then, I do 10 minutes on the recumbent bike. Ten minutes forward and 10 backwards. I always use ice after any exercise for my knees.
Thanks, I think these will help

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).
