How to strengthen your knees. Part 3

How to strengthen your knees. Part 3

This is the last in a  3 part series of how to treat an injured knee and when to go see a healthcare professional.

 

We reviewed the different types of knee injuries and then we described how to go about treating a knee injury. Now we are going to cover what it's like to strengthen and rehab a knee.

 

Strength training when done properly can increase flexibility and the strength around the knee joints.

 

  • Lunges
  • Squats
  • deadlift
  • balance activities
  • calf raises

 

To name a few movements that can be helpful in minimizing and at times eliminating knee dysfunction.

 

Activities such as

 

  • bike
  • swimming
  • elliptical
  • rower
  • hiking

 

Can help improve

 

  • balance
  • coordination
  • strength

 

Talk to your health provider who has some knowledge of strength training and seek out guidance from a fitness professional in your local community. A local fitness trainer may be better suited as their close proximity may be easier for you to make a commitment and be consistent to a structured fitness program.
