Chronic Pain : Health Tip: Exercise a Painful Knee

Posted September 26, 2016

(HealthDay News) -- The thought of exercising an aching knee may sound painful, but gentle stretches can really help ease symptoms.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons explains how:
  • By strengthening surrounding muscles. This means better shock absorption, less pain and less risk of future injury.
  • By loosening tight muscles, which are more prone to injury
  • By enhancing flexibility in the knee, making the joint and surrounding muscles less sore.
