Number 1: Lunging Hip Flexor Stretch
With a full range of motion in your joint, this pick will strengthen the knee supporting muscles. Strong muscles, in turn, will increase your knee’s shock-absorbing ability. Being a low-impact gentle exercise, it will increase the flexibility of your arthritic joint without overburdening it.
Number 2: Knee to Chest Stretch
With the sedentary lifestyle most of us have, it’s important to give those back muscles a stretch too. A knee to chest stretch is a wonderful way to work the lower back muscles which are often the neglected ones. It also helps in reducing stiffness which is associated with spinal arthritis.
Number 3: Leg Raise
The leg raise is a basic exercise with a not-so-basic benefit as it strengthens your quadriceps. These are large muscles can be found on the fronts of your thighs. They attach to your knee joints and provide you with stability, strength and balance.
Number 4: Side Leg Raise
A side leg raise is very particular with the kind of muscles it targets. Muscles responsible for activities like walking, balancing and lifting are grouped together as adductor muscles. By working out these muscles, side leg raises can give you relief from arthritis pain in the knee along with increasing the joint flexibility.
