This Week's Ask Gilad: Exercises For Knee Pain and Rehabilitation
Question: I have a knee injury called Chondromalacia of the right patellofemoral joint and I am going to be starting therapy next week. What kind of exercise program would you recommend that I can do until my knee heals?
In regards to healing your knee condition there are a few things you can do while your knee heals. Swimming is an excellent activity because it's a great cardio workout while placing little stress on the joints. You can also do specific exercises to strengthen the quadriceps and hamstring muscles. We offer a variety of such exercises on our Power and Grace DVD workout. The key in Chondromalacia of the patella is to find exercises that are low impact and most importantly is to find those exercises that do not cause any pain.
