Common Questions and Answers about Knee exercises strengthen
due to medical restrictions makes it difficult to exercise. Does anyone here have any advice or exercises that could help me get my legs stronger? I am not yet stronger enough for running or jumping but am willing to do whatever it takes to get stronger. All comments are welcome and thank you for taking the time to listen to my rambling.
Ice-packs and NSAIDS may also be helpful for relief. After that I would advice seeing a physiotherapist for exercises that would strengthen you hamstrings. You may also consult with your doctor if you would be required to wear a knee brace.
Hope this helps.
It is all so embarrassing. I am a nurse that knows better. What exercises can I do to strengthen my knees and thighs so I can function better. In the pool I can hardly get out because the step is pretty deep. I took something to stand on to help me out. I'm a mess.
Stretching the front and back or your leg to increase the flexibility in your knee. Perform stretching exercises at the end of your workout when your muscles are warm. Stretch the front of your leg in a standing position by bending your knee and raising your foot up toward your backside. Grasp the ankle with your hand to enhance the stretch. Stretch the back of your legs in a seated position with your legs extended on the floor. Fold forward over your straight legs to stretch your hamstrings.
During the episode of pain if you use crutches then it is important not to do any weight bearing on the affected knee. You can apply ice packs when your knee is painful, after physical activity as this reduces your pain and inflammation.
Resting from aggravating activities such as running and jogging allows time for recovery and healing. You should also practice stretching activities. You should consider physiotherapy to strengthen your quadriceps and hamstrings.
helps stretch and strengthen. I always do stretches before doing any of these exercises. Such as sit on the floor with legs out and spread as far apart as i can then i bend towards the right leg trying to touch my toes with both hands then reaching out in front of me tryin to reach as far as i can forward and then to the left trying to reach my toes with both hands. I do 20 of each of those then i also do neck rolls to help loosen me up 20 to the left then 20 to the right complete neck rolls.
After menisectomy I would suggest you to go for physical exercises and exercises to strengthen your quadrceps femoris muscle before thinking about surgical procedures. Rehabilitation after arthroscopic meniscectomy carries little or no risk. Rehabilitation is continued until the knee has regained full range of motion and strength .
Hi, ‘bowing’ leads to increased load on the inner side of the knee causing further wear and tear. In this entire process, the outer side of the knee joint is virtually intact. Osteotomy is now available for patients who have not reached the last stages of arthritis. This involves realigning i.e. straightening the bowed knee the knee in such a manner that the load on the inner side of the knee is transferred to the outer side of the knee.
I hurt my knee at work and they told me it was a patellar dislocation and it must of relocated it self and they gave me a knee brace and said I could go back to work . but I cant even bare to walk on it it hurts so bad oh they also gave me a shot of steroid in my arm to take the swelling down but my knee still doesn't feel right like it keeps popping out of place what should I do ?
You could try resting the knee for a few days, followed with physiotherapy or exercises to strengthen the muscles around the knee. Tylenol/ OTC NSAIDS may be helpful for pain relief. If the symptoms continue, I would suggest a review with your orthopedician.
Hope this is helpful.
t really help too much so I decided to start working out on it doing some light jump exercises on it, too maybe strengthen the muscles. I did those this past Monday and Wednesday, and on Thursday my knee had swollen up and had a big bruise just above the kneecap and is painful. I don't know what to do to heal it. If you could please give me some advice to heal it, it would be greatly appreciated. Or maybe some exercises to do to prevent it in the other knee.
First you have to find out whether the muscle wasting was the cause or the effect of knee locking or knee pain. Generally weakness of the inner thigh muscles and tightness of the outer thigh muscles causes the knee cap to move from its place and cause knee pain and knee locking. This could have happened in your case if you have a localized muscle wasting only.
There are many physio aids like wobble boards and rocker boards. If possible take a session with a good physical therapist to make sure you are doing the right exercises.
Make sure you don't hurt yourself again (my rule of thumb is that if you feel worse the next morning then you should cut back or stop what you are doing). I would also suggest yoga as it is really good for balance.
since in a few situations such as tendinopathies, rest for a few weeks may be indicated; while in other exercises to strengthen the muscle may help. A management plan can be drafted once the issue behind the symptoms is identified.
Hope this is helpful.
Now I am paying for it, my knee gives way and I have very bad pain every day my leg is half the size of my other and you can see the sutures move in my knee. I have to go for a Camera in my knee in 4 weeks have I damaged my self ? or can i repair this? pls give me some advice I know its my own fault.
I broke my right ankle in January. I had a long leg cast applied at first, but the fibia separated when the swelling went down. The doctor had me go in for surgery and I had to have a plate and pins put in. That was done on Valentine's Day. When the staples were removed, he had me in a boot, so that I could bath.
I had an appointment today and he wants me to start walking on the foot and doing some exercises to strengthen and help with the mobility of my ankle.
If it is just occasionally popping with no pain, it could be nothing and some exercise like knee bends could strengthen your knee. On the other hand, it is painful too especially with swelling you may want to see a doc. If your knee is making a grinding noise for example it could mean that the cartilage is wearing down.
Especially if this continues to bother you check with your pcp or an orthopedic specialist before exercising or anything!
This really limits my exercises, as many require weight-bearing on bent knees. Is this a normal knee thing, and can I stop babying my knee and start doing things in a normal fashion, or is this, as I fear, bad and only going to get worse?
Patello-femoral syndrome is typically managed with NSAIDS and physical exercises to strengthen the muscle around the knee joint. However with your symptoms, the presence of loose bodies and internal knee injuries may need to be ruled out. You may also require a knee brace to stabilize the patella if suggested. At this stage I would advise seeing an orthopedician and after an evaluation a management plan can be drafted accordingly.
Hope this is useful.
Your right, I do find it hard to strengthen my surgery knee in which was diagnosed with PFS. Its been 3 months since I ve been doing PT, but the weakness are still there and casual walking sometimes gives way on my surgery knee. Any suggestion, or is patient the key thing here and I am 26 with an athletic build. Can you suggest exercises I should be focusing on.
d recommend is seeing a physical therapist who can show you tons of core building exercises, as well as exercises to strengthen your knee and the muscles around it. Or you can go to a gym and get a personal trainer to show you. Or go on You Tube. Or wait for someone here to mention a thousand exercises, because there are literally thousands of different exercises to work on different parts of your core, not that working on your core has proven to be all that beneficial.
Now about a month back i had fallen while snowboarding and it bent my knee inwards the pain at the time wasnt too bad but its worsening and also is making my ankle hurt more. Im only 21 years old 140 lbs any type of reason for the constant ankle pain would be appreciated.
