Exercises for Knee Pain Relief

Hey everyone! When I started posting more squat and lower-body workouts last week, I got many requests for this video. I actually had already had a knee pain video, but I felt like I could make it a lot better, so I remade it.

For more information, check out my friend ‎@ChrisRaynorMD aka @stablekneez on Instagram. Dr. Chris is a great surgeon, creative content creator, and all around good guy. He knows a LOT more than I do about this stuff. If you're interested, check him out!

Knee pain can be caused by MANY things, and this video is not intended to diagnose or treat any medical conditions. Some issues cannot be solved with exercise or physical therapy alone.

However, I've found that building up do doing squats with a full range of motion can help with knee pain. It's interesting, because there are some fitness figures that are adamantly against deep squatting because they claim it is BAD for the knees. I like it, and I've found it to be a very natural position. However, I do think that many people may not be prepared for it. Like any exercise, it can potentially hurt you if you're not acclimated to it. You can use your arm to assist you through the motion until you're able to do it without your arms with no pain. I have a full YouTube video on this: www.hybridcalisthenics.com/deepsquat.

Beyond this, sometimes strengthening our calves and hamstrings can "mysteriously" fix our knee pain. Both of these muscle groups support the knees.

On the other hand, sometimes these muscles are simply too TIGHT. You muscle fibers may be getting too tight and constantly trying to hyperextend your knees. Savor some calf and hamstring stretches.

I should point out that my chosen hamstring stretch in this video, standing toe touches, are controversial to some. Again, I like them, so they're shown here. If you are against them or they hurt you, you're very welcome to choose a different hamstring stretch.

Finally, I talk about isometric exercises like the horse stance and wall sit that seem to help with knee pain.

I touch upon synovial fluid, which is largely responsible for healing and nourishing our joints. Synovial fluid mostly circulates with movement, so I've included some knee "circles."

Hope this helps!
