Common Questions and Answers about Knee exercises to strengthen


Avatar f tn Doing crunches and planks won't get rid of that pesky belly fat, you will have to take up a form of aerobic exercise to burn fat. For a recovering knee injury I'd suggest either taking up swimming or even cycling.

Avatar f tn 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. Take care!

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I would differ, as whatever you're suffering from isn't something we can know. That fact osteoarthritis showed up on an MRI, for example, doesn't mean that's the reason you're feeling pain. It could be, but it could be muscular or other things as well. And as for exercises for this, I would get referred to physical therapy.
Avatar f tn I've been to an orthopedic twice now. He diagnosed me with patellar tendonitis, or jumper's knee. It hurts just to walk on it, and whenever I'm reading online, I see to rest it and discontinue any activity that aggravates the knee or causes pain. I was curious whether I should be using crutches or not, I just don't want to make it worse. The orthopedic didn't say anything about it, and just gave me a NSAID cream to put on it for the swelling and what-not.
667937 tn?1227758698 then you twist as you sit up some and try to reach your right elbow to your left knee and then come back down then do again but try to get your left elbow as close to touching your right knee. i guess that is kind of a twisting crunch? helps stretch and strengthen. I always do stretches before doing any of these exercises.
Avatar f tn 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 .
Avatar m tn 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. This is done by cutting the lower bone of the knee in a particular. For the cost of surgery, you have to ask the orthopedic surgeons in your area but it is quite affordable and recovery is good.

2092579 tn?1332911982 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. Take care!
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn How would you work on your legs and especially the knee area of fat to tone or lose?
Avatar f tn I then had a prothesis put in my shoe which cured the knee pain. Funny but true! I try to remember to do the exercises because they have helped a lot but when you feel better my resolve is not so good. I hope you are a better patient than me!!
Avatar f tn A great way to strengthen your balance is to stand on one leg and close your eyes. Focus on the muscles and alignment of your body, stay lifted and strong on your supporting leg and hold for as long as you can. It sounds simple but it's actually quite difficult. Again repeat this on both sides. 6. The clock - standing, lift your right foot up to the left height of the left knee.

Avatar f tn I know all the ways to induce labor just looking for ways to go ahead and start dilating and soften my cervix plus strengthen my legs for pushing time lol!!
Avatar f tn Since you’re not using external weights, the main way to add intensity to these body-weight exercises is to do more reps, or to reduce the resting times between exercises. You can, however, use gravity to make some body-weight exercises more challenging. Elevating your feet when you perform pushups, for example, forces you to lift more of your weight.
Avatar m tn 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!
Avatar f tn Popping or crunching sound in knee can be due to arthritis (it can be rheumatoid arthritis too). It can also be due to medial or lateral meniscus injury or patellar injury (caused by active sports, dancing, exercising or accidental). Another possibility is Chondromalacia patella in which the knee cap keeps rubbing against the underlying cartilage of femur (corrected by braces, taping, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, physiotherapy or surgery).
Avatar f tn 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. Take care!
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
