Therapeutic Exercises for the Knees
It is important to know that the knees bear the brunt of the
body’s weight and provide the required stability and
flexibility. Physiotherapists are well aware of this fact and
they help patients with special therapeutic exercises that
relieve stress or damage afflicting the knees, depending on
the type of knee injury.


The exercises encompass a broad range of activities that are
generally simple to perform so much so that these can also
be carried out in the convenience of one’s home. Therapists
would guide the patients and ask them to perform the
exercises to overcome stiffness and gradually increase the
range of motion. This would also strengthen the leg
muscles and make them limber. Moreover, these can
protect the knees from further pain and injuries by
increasing the body’s endurance level. Therapeutic
exercises are known to promote a general sense of
wellbeing, especially among the aged and the feeble.
Physiotherapists from premier facilities are well-trained
and experienced to help patients make a speedy recovery
and provide all necessary support during their rehabilitation
period.

Take Instructions Seriously
Patients are advised not to attempt any exercise of their
own free will. Only a well-qualified therapist can ascertain
the patient’s condition and suggest the right exercise
technique. Moreover, physical therapy exercises for knee
injuries are to be taken seriously to prevent long term knee
problems or even surgery. Just because you feel better, it
doesn’t mean that you can return to normal activities. You
should necessarily seek the expert opinion of a specialist
before taking a unilateral decision.
