Knee exercises with resistance band

Common Questions and Answers about Knee exercises with resistance band


Avatar f tn Lie on your back with one of your legs fully extended and the other bent at the knee -- this is the leg to be stretched. Position the center of the resistance band around the ball of your foot and grab the ends of the resistance band with each of your hands. Fully extend your leg so that the ball of your foot is pointing directly to the ceiling. Pull on the resistance band. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings. Hold this position for 10 seconds. Relax and repeat 10 times.
Avatar f tn Make sure there is resistance with your feet hip-width apart. Start with low resistance and progressively work your way up to heavier resistance. Stand with your hands on your hips and feet hip-width apart. Bend your knees 45 degrees. Keep your knees directly over your ankles. Step out with your right foot. Pause. Step in with your left foot, returning your feet to hip-width. Continue for 20 steps. Repeat on the other side, leading with your left foot.
Avatar n tn At the gym, use the cable pulleys for resistance, but at home, use a circular resistance band that can loop around your ankle and anchor to a stable object in front of you. Stand with your feet at hip-width, then bend the banded leg at the knee, raising your foot behind you toward your buttocks. Thighs and hips remain stationary throughout the movement, with back straight.
Avatar m tn You can find a website by putting in lliotibial band syndrome and they will show you exercises that are supposed to help with stretching out the band. My only problem with those exercises is they require me to lay on my go figure. I hope you find more help then I have, this is stopping me from going back to work and applying for disability is a joke. Good Luck Brendan because i certainly feel your pain.
Avatar f tn Once you are able to walk short distances unassisted, it is important to regain the strength in your leg muscles with resistance exercises. You can do the early rehab exercises with light ankle weights or resistance bands, and you can ride a stationary bike at varying degrees of resistance to strengthen your muscles and work on your range of motion at the same time. Consider taking yoga or tai chi classes.

Avatar n tn Side stepping lunge puts more emphasis on your hips. Stand with your feet together and step laterally to one side. Bend that knee and push your butt backward. Slowly rise up. Step your feet back together. Repeat the exercise on your other side. Hold dumbbells to increase the resistance. Seated abduction is done in two ways with an abduction machine or with a resistance loop.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr Junig. I started with pain above my right knee (lateral side) 18 months ago, which then quickly translated into pain the whole length of my IT band. I had several months of physio, stretching strengthening exercises. I have had knee, hip and back x-rays, MRI scans on my back and hip, two knee operations for mild CMP and a lateral release. I have also seen a chiropracter and had a bio-mechanical assessment (othotics req'd).
Avatar f tn You can try doing some weights or resistance band exercises, but if you're losing weight, that might just be something you will have to put up with. Some of just get saggy skin when we lose weight. Check out YouTube for upper body exercises using weights.
Avatar m tn Hi there! Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the knee pain. Possibilities that may need to be considered include patellar dislocation, chondromalacia patellae, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, cyst formation, iliotibial band syndrome, osgood schlatter disease, bone growths/ tumours, nerve impingement/ compression, fractures, injuries to the internal knee ligaments/ menisci etc; just to name a few.

Avatar n tn The most likely exercises to help repair and rehabilitate the shoulders are rotator cuff exercises usually with cable or band. You can also do later raise with a light band as well.
Avatar f tn I will briefly touch on the PT/doctor issues with Medicaid and then recommend some additional exercises. Last year, I took a year off from my profession and volunteered in St. Louis, MO and worked with the low income and uninsured population. Medicaid issues are very frustrating; however, there are doctors out there that want to help this population, you just have to find them. I found in a city setting, it is much easier to find doctors that participate with Medicaid...
Avatar f tn Will try to get some resistance band exercises loaded in Health Pages and provide you with a link. Give me through the weekend please and I'll try to have them up. In the meantime .. have you thought of belly dancing? Lesson 1 - Lesson 2 - Beginning Workout and Performance
Avatar n tn It did not, and I began to experience pain within the knee joint after a a few months due to bone-on-bone contact. I had a total knee replacement and recovered well from the surgery (March 2009). However, the ITB problem persists and flares up with rather short walks or bike rides. My orthopedic surgeon says that any surgical approach (such as Z-plasty) is contra-indicated after a TKR. Is that the general opinion?
1285110 tn?1420147378 I have the Wii Active Personal Trainer which comes with a resistance band that kinda reminds me of a skipping rope.... I was thinking that this summer while we are camping/vacationing I could get some kind of similar band to take along. Anyways, the point of this comment is that they do all sorts of arm exercises with it - bicep curls, lateral bicep curls, etc. If you could get a band of some sort like that it would be easy enough to do without the system as well.
Avatar f tn Its never too early to do toning exercises! It will actually help a lot! I would use a resistance band. If using weights what I was told when I used a personal trainer that if you are upping 15-20 reps without straining they are too light. Make sure to do three reps as well. They are also many exercises you can do without even touching weights or resistance bands! Good luck, you got this! You can always pm me to talk more.
Avatar f tn It also helps to get leaner and longer leg muscles that will give you the look you desire. End your leg resistance training with 10 minutes of stretches for the legs, glutes and lower back. Before doing anything get the OK from your doctor.
Avatar f tn Folks, the poster said she can't do squats because of a bad knee. Until we know how bad the knee is, we can't tell her what exercises to do specifically. Also, squats as I said don't make the butt smaller, they make it more muscular somewhat, but they really more affect the part of body doing the work, which are the thighs and calves. When you do a squat, you're working the buttocks some, but the power to do them comes from the more powerful muscles beneath it.
Avatar n tn That's a pretty broad post. Can you afford a personal trainer at a gym? That way you can tell them what you want and they can get you started. You'll only get "huge" legs if you do tons of leg resistance exercises (and if you have the genetic ability to get them without taking steroids, which is unlikely unless you have large legs to begin with).
Avatar f tn I also have knee problems when I use the treadmill. I try to use the elliptical with high resistance which is still a great workout but knee friendly!
Avatar n tn It could possibly be IT or iliotibial band syndrome. There is a band of tissue that starts at your hips and runs outside of your thigh down to your knee and is meant to provide stability to the knee during movement. This can cause pain like you describe. Here's information on it. Tingling or anything like that? You could also have a nerve issue.
Avatar f tn You can research low impact exercises and come up with all types of videos. Additionally, in some cases, disuse make injuries worse, so check with your doctor about that. You have to enter the foods you eat every day to get the number of calories you eat, then you can save those foods as favorites. Just go to your food diary and add your meals each day.
