Different structures can be responsible for knee pain – for example, muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, menisci, etc. You can feel the pain on the front, back, inside, outside, or all over the knee. Persistent complaints, in particular, often have similar causes. Tension changes in the muscles and fascia around the knee joint as well as weakness in the glutes, the quadriceps and the muscles on the back of the thigh often strain the knee joint during everyday and physical activities. We will show you which exercises you can use to alleviate or eliminate your knee pain.

Your knee pain exercise program:
  • Myofascial self-massage
  • Triggering deep stress points
  • Mobilization and stretching exercises
  • Exercises for activation and strengthening
3-5 times a week

Perform these knee exercises three to five times per week for optimum results. If you don’t have a lot of time, choose at least one exercise from each category.

Get well soon!

Do the knee pain exercises also as pain prevention.

Releasing deep muscle tension associated with knee pain

After the myofascial self-massage, you can trigger deep-lying fascial adhesions with the BLACKROLL® by TMX TRIGGER. The targeted pressure on your muscle can relieve deep tension. During these knee exercises, find the most tender spot. If you are sore the next day, be sure to take the day off.

Mobilization and stretching exercises for knee pain

Mobilization and stretching exercises help to reduce mobility restrictions in the knee joint, so that it becomes fully mobile again. These knee exercises are therefore important in order to use the entire function of the joint.

Lie on your side on the floor. Bend your lower leg at the hip and knee joint so that you are stable. Now grasp that leg at the ankle with the arm that is on top and pull the heel toward your buttocks.
