Although commonly associated with aging, there are many factors which can cause knee pain. Arthritis, other inflammatory conditions and injuries can all result in knee pain, which can range from mild to severe. The stronger the pain, the more debilitating the condition is. Knee pain is never a simple problem, and can seriously interfere with your daily activities. Even worse, it seems like nothing you can do stops it, which is why people want to get rid of it as soon as possible.
Today we’re going to show you a few simple exercises which will stop your knee pain and help you move freely again.
Bent leg raises
Sit on a chair and extend one of your legs in front, keeping it parallel to the ground. Hold the position for 60 seconds or as much as you can, then lower that leg to the ground and repeat the exercise with your other leg. Go for 4-5 repetitions per leg.
Quad stretch and half kneel hip
Go down on your right knee on a mat on the ground, while keeping your left foot in front of you. Now, lean on your left knee and stretch your hips, then lift your back ankle towards the hip with your knee bent. Repeat the process 15 times per leg.
Wall calf stretch
Lean with your body on a wall and put one foot on it, while keeping the other firmly on the ground. Now, lean forward to stretch your calf, hold for up to 15 seconds and relax. Repeat the exercise 10-15 times.
The exercises are easy to perform and require no special equipment. They won’ take much of your time and can be done anywhere, so you may want to try them if you’re suffering from knee pain.
