Health Tip: Exercise Your Knees After Injury
But avoid too much strain

(HealthDay News) -- If you've hurt one or both knees, performing gentle exercises can help bring them back to full strength.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests:

  • Begin exercises slowly, increasing weight or repetitions over time.
  • Never ignore pain. While some discomfort is likely, it's not OK to have significant pain during exercise.
  • Don't push yourself too hard. After exercise, mild soreness or stiffness is OK, but severe pain or difficulty moving is not.
  • Talk to your doctor or physical therapist if you have questions about how you should exercise your knees.
